French Election: First Round Results By Department
Voters in Paris rejected Le Pen with the FN leader picking up just 4.99 percent of the capital's votes compared to Macron's 34.83 percent. However, she did prove extremely popular with rural voters and in the five regions surrounding Paris in particular. Le Pen also came first in Grand Est, Hauts-de-France, Normandie, Centre-Val de Loire and Bourgogne-Franche-Comté. Despite her popularity outside the country's big cities, Le Pen is still expected to lose to Macron in the second round of the election on May 07.
