Emmanuel Macron may be about to see the downside of becoming the favorite to win France’s presidential election.
In a televised debate Monday night featuring the five leading candidates, Macron’s standing in the polls, his relative lack of experience and his centrist positions mean he offers the richest seam of pickings for his rivals.
Multiple polls show that both Macron, a 39-year-old independent, and Marine Le Pen, 48, of the National Front, currently have the support of about one-quarter of voters for the first-round ballot that is five weeks away. And polls predict that Macron would emerge the easy winner in the runoff 14 days later.
