Le Pen May Need to Triple Votes to Win French Election: Chart

While French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen is leading in opinion polls for the first round in April, surveys also show she is set to lose the run-off in May. About 44.8 million people are registered voters in France, where the average turnout in presidential elections since 1988 has been 81.3 percent. Based on this, Le Pen would need about 18.2 million votes to become France’s next president, nearly three times the number of votes she got in 2012.
