The qualified candidate for the second round to take on the outgoing president, Emmanuel Macron, again achieved her best scores as in 2017 in the north of the island. Macouba, Basse-Pointe, Lorrain, Gros-Morne and Prêcheur had him flirt with 20% and more to 26%.

No wonder for Charles Bélimont, the candidate’s spokesman. The north has “specially focused” during the 1st round campaign he indicates.

We have greatly stepped up our work on the North because for several years, 2012, 2017, we have found that it is always the North that has given us the most votes. This sector was therefore particularly targeted. Now we go south to campaign. There is a phenomenon of immigration from neighboring islands, but there is another observation: Every time people see the photo of Marine Le Pen when we hand out leaflets in the field, we hear “ah, mi madam ‘ well an!” (ah, here’s our wife) because people think it’s high time to put a woman in the French presidency.

Indeed, political scientist Justin Daniel notes that there is a supporter of Marine Le Pen’s speech, “speech that has become commonplace over time” and not just in Martinique.

There is a significant evolution of the electorate. Sure, there’s a dull rage in overseas societies again, but today we see Marine Le Pen setting milestones for a number of years. She has made a habit of addressing foreign voters directly and I would also like to remind you that she had already managed to get a Member of the European Parliament elected in 2019 in Guadeloupe. there is support for the discourse developed by Marine Le Pen, especially as this discourse has become commonplace over time.
