With 21.7% of the votes, Jean-Luc Mélenchon missed another goal – liberation

Presidential Election 2022case

For his third season, the rebellious leader improved on his 2017 score, without making it to the finals to widen the “mouse hole” enough.

The mouse hole too narrow for the “clever turtle”. The La France insoumise candidate – who is contesting his third presidential election – achieved a good result (21.7% according to the latest Ipsos estimates for France Télévisions). Not enough to play the final against Emmanuel Macron. He dreamed about it. He “felt something”, he said at his last meeting in Lille. Victory was at “fingertip”. Jean-Luc Mélenchon has come a long way: after a five-year roller coaster ride – marked by defeats in the midterm elections and the raid episode – who would have thought he would reach this level? Jean-Luc Mélenchon climbed the slope like a cyclist on Mont Ventoux. He stayed away from discussions related to the Union of the Left and the official and unofficial primaries. He made the hole from the month of January. His immersive speech in Nantes gave him points. Jean-Luc Mélenchon has put on the “useful vote” cap without saying so – he prefers the term “Effective Voting”.

Insufficient enthusiasm

However, in the last few hours, a wave broke out (especially on social networks): influencers and artists (like the rapper Rohff) called for voters to vote. A way to get young people moving. Jean-Luc Mélenchon also received public support from Christiane Taubira and environmental filmmaker Cyril Dion. Rallies that injured Anne Hidalgo and Yannick Jadot. The crowd did not throw themselves straight into the arms of the Volksbund candidate, convinced of his entire program. “The takeover of power by the extreme right is a risk that we cannot accept. From the first lap I decided to block his path. The left candidate capable of doing this today is Jean-Luc Mélenchon. Sunday, he will have my vote.”The former keeper of the seal wrote that in a press release. Insufficient to justify Seine-Saint-Denis MP Eric Coquerel, who shared his optimism this Sunday: “I see something happening everywhere, especially in working-class neighborhoods. To be honest, I don’t see how we can’t go into the second round.
