Trump phenomenon leaves French elite running scared

The Times reports:
France’s political class is in a panic at suggestions that Donald Trump’s victory will set Marine Le Pen on course for victory in next year’s presidential election.

The country’s ruling class now fears that polls predicting a narrow defeat for the National Front leader will prove as erroneous as the surveys by US pollsters that showed a win for Hillary Clinton.

Mainstream figures are so anxious that many are now copying Ms Le Pen’s arguments in an attempt to reach out to working class voters.
Imagine that.
