IFOP Poll: Most French police officers to vote for Le Pen in Sunday's election

According to the latest IFOP poll, as cited by the UK’s Daily Mail, more than half of police officers in France have said they are voting for far-right candidate Marine Le Pen in Sunday's election because of her strong anti-terror stance.

The poll outcome shows 51% of the Gendarmerie are planning to back Le Pen in the nail-biting election.

Daily Mail reports, “Le Pen has pledged to beef up law and order in her manifesto, with 15,000 more police officers, deporting foreign criminals and closing extremist mosques.”

According to the poll, Le Pen's strongest base of support is among working-age people with lower education.
