    In 2002 the elder LePen slipped into the Presidential run-off and got destroyed by Chiraq 82-18%.  If you look at the run-off polls for 2012 Sarkozy was only leading LePen 63-37%.  That's still a landslide, but it does seem to indicate the far-right in France isn't as fringe as it was a decade ago.

    •  also Marine isn't quite as crazy (3+ / 0-)
