Far-Right Marine Le Pen Leads Presidential Polling in France

According to a Harris poll released on March 5, Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right National Front, would come in first if the first round of  Presidential elections were held this year. That puts her ahead of  both President Sarkozy and Socialist Party leader Martine Aubry.

Marine Le Pen is the daughter of controversial founder of the National Front, Jean-Marie Le Pen. She has also taken controversial positions on the European Union, immigration and other social issues.

Here is a video of Le Pen. Notice her startling analysis of the the European Union and the Euro. The comparison of the EU to a “dead star” is classic.
