The year of challengers? Issues, public opinion, and elections in Western Europe in 2017 edited by Lorenzo De Sio and Aldo Paparo Within the seven-month period going from mid-March to mid-October of 2017, five Western-European democracies held their general elections: the Netherlands, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Austria. This provided an exceptional opportunity to study public opinion structures in these countries in the particularly turbulent context that followed disruptive electoral developments such as the Brexit referendum and the election of Donald Trump. To exploit this opportunity, the CISE launched an innovative comparative research project to empirically assess before the elections the preferences of...

La République en Marche (LREM), Emmanuel Macron’s newly formed political party has taken a decisive lead in the first round of the legislative elections with 32% of the votes on Sunday June 11. Les Républicains (LR, right) come second with 21%, followed by the Front National at 13% (FN, radical right), La France Insoumise at 11% (LFI, radical left), and Parti Socialiste (PS) with a bit less than 10% of the votes (including its traditional allies). In a two-round single member district electoral system, the lead of LREM (despite being around 11%) could lead to a hegemonic domination in...

(English translation by Elisabetta Mannoni) So Macron and Le Pen get to the second round. An historical result that - as almost all commentators highlighted - excludes both socialists and the neo-Gaullist right, who had dominated the French political life for decades. However, what are the reasons and voting motivations behind this result? Where does Macron’s success come from? What about his cross-cutting appeal? What about Mélenchon’s exploit? Does it come from his controversial positions? Or is it a identification vote by the French left, disappointed with the Hamon candidacy? We can’t answer to these questions only by looking at the...

(traduzione a cura di Elisabetta Mannoni) Come dimostrato dall’enfasi e dalla copertura mediatica di critici e giornalisti da tutta Europa, le elezioni presidenziali francesi (il cui primo turno sarà il 23 aprile) potrebbero rivelarsi un bivio nella storia europea. In un contesto internazionale sempre meno prevedibile, le forze francesi anti-establishment ed euroscettiche di destra e di sinistra stanno crescendo, a scapito dei partiti tradizionali. I sondaggi non solo indicano Marine Le Pen in testa al primo turno fin dall’inizio della campagna elettorale, ma per la prima volta rivelano che la leader del Front National sarebbe competitiva anche al secondo turno....
