The party-system is then severely shaken, the extreme-right has never gathered so many votes, the French people is divided about the strategy to adopt between the two turns, and the perspective for the future president of having a strong majority at the legislative elections in June is highly improbable.
Whatever the outcomes might be, populist themes have spread, especially in the toxic context of the terrorist attacks: Euroscepticism, aggressive rants against diversity and immigration, doubtful questions about the future of laïcité and French culture, a left- and right-wing revival of patriotism and nationalism.
