Le Pen Support Grows After Trump Shock

marine-le-penThe political establishments of Britain and the United States have been rocked at the ballot box – and the next great electoral revolt could be in France, with far-right National Front (FN) leader Marine Le Pen a serious contender for next spring’s Presidential elections.

Available at 6/1 prior to the surprise victory for Donald Trump in the American presidential vote, in from 10/1 six months ago, she has since been steadily backed and is now a best price of just 7/4. Alain Juppe, the Republican mayor of Bordeaux – who served as Prime Minister from 1995-1997 – remains 4/5 favourite to replace Francois Hollande as President, with Nicolas Sarkozy next at 10/1.
