Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Back from my polling station where I was volunteering for ballot counting: 80-20 in Macron's favor, by the way.

The nation wide results are in (estimates as of 20:00):
65.8% for Macron and 34.2% for Le Pen.

Ballot tallying is just concluded in big cities where polls closed at 20:00 so the results will probably still tilt further in Macron's favor (BFMTV says 65.9% for Macron now).

This is clearly a setback for Le Pen who was expecting more than 40%.

But she doubled what her father got. Take that daddy! He in turn jeers that Marine can't win but maybe the niece Marechal-Le Pen. Happy family.

Schengen is toast!
