Presidential favourite François Fillon still expected to beat far-right leader by comfortable margin in second round
Marine Le Pen has overtaken French presidential favourite François Fillon to become the frontrunner in the latest first round election poll.
The Front National leader is now polling at 26.5 per cent, a lead of 1.5 per cent over former Conservative Prime Minister Fillon.
However, Mr Fillon is still expected to beat the far-right leader in a second round runoff in May, with polls giving him 64 per cent over Ms Le Pen’s 36 per cent.
If Le Penn does get elected it would mean France leaving the EU and ditching the Euro - both have implications for the dollar and gold.
