Here’s a quote from a woman interviewed by the guardian on the French election (emphasis, and frustration, mine):
Another former Socialist, Karine Bartier, said she had voted for far-left candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon in the first round. “Now I don’t want to vote for either of them,” said the 45-year-old. Still, when faced with the ballot box, she had chosen Front National.
“There are too many immigrants,” she said. “France is already in such a difficult position – how are we supposed to welcome more people with such misery? At least with Le Pen, we have a chance at change. Things can’t get any worse anyway.”
