🇫🇷🧵5 takes from yesterday's historic #FrenchElections. 1) Severe blow for Macron. Key architects of campaign (Ferrand, Castaner) are beaten. Part of problem may be #EnMarche team is too technocratic/bland. Shockingly weak calls to block #LePen in 2nd round will leave a stain 1/5
2) Le Pen is the big winner of the night with far more MPs than predicted (they go from 8 to 89!). RN waged a stealth, quiet campaign and swept the field in rural areas. Hate to say it, but maybe this is a good thing: Parliament will now look more like French society. 2/5
3) #Melenchon did brilliant job w #NUPES alliance. Looked impossible 3 months ago. He put the politics back into French politics. But 142 seats = not a big success, esp. outside big cities. I bet alliance starts to crack soon. New faces (ex @KekeRachel) are breath o fresh air 3/5

🧵#FrenchElections - Macron may soon be losing an election which he should in theory never lose. Despite securing an impressive 30%+ in the polls, there is still no majority for the far right in France. One of the reasons is the collapse of the so-called ‘front républicain’. 1/
The ‘republican front’ refers to a strategy by France’s mainstream parties to ally against far-right politicians when electoral circumstances demand it. 2/
The ‘republican front’ successfully worked in 2002 (Chirac defeating Jean-Marie Le Pen by 80 vs 20%), and less successfully again in 2017 (Macron defeating Marine le Pen by 66 vs 34%). 3/
