Rassemblement National sympathizers supporting death penalty in France 2014-2022
Nowadays, the reinstatement of the death penalty remains a politically polarizing issue. While slightly less than half of the French are in favor of it, this is the case for most of the supporters of Marine Le Pen's party. More than 80 percent were in favor of reinstating the death penalty in 2022, but this number varies significantly depending on the year. In 2014, 79 percent of supporters of the Rassemblement National (at the time still Front National) wanted to restore the death penalty, against 92 percent in 2018.
