Completely agree with this being great value at the moment. The problem with the German election is it comes after the Dutch and French, those elections could systematically change the relationship that Germany has with the EU. I think the AfD price is based on a grand coalition to save the EU vs an anti-establisment vote.

The thing is you can so easily trade out if things go that way that the current price is a no-brainer.

Anxious sums it up rather well.

Le Pen wins the first round because she has the most support.
Her problem is you get this unholy alliance against her in the second round where left and right combine forces.

Fillon is so far to the right you would think the Left would baulk at supporting him.
Also calling Le Pen far right is wrong,she has some left leaning policies.

Macron is pro the EU which is a minus.
His statement about Algeria and war crimes will surely antagonise the right.

From Le Pens point of view she would rather face someone from the right.
Surely the Left in France have some regard for their country.

I backed him as the price was far too big if he made it past the nomination stage and felt he had a sporting chance of winning it as I didn't strongly fancy any of the other contenders.
I backed Leave because I had said all along the polls were too close for remain to be 1/3 and the value lay in backing Leave at 3/1.

Report Des Pond March 12, 2017 9:01 PM GMT
The market has an unusual dynamic, at this stage. Although Le pen is expected to be 1st or a close second in the First Round of voting, she is widely expected to lose the second round to either Macron or Fillon. It's a question of whether the last 2 will be Le Pen and Macron or Le pen and Fillon. The odds for Le Pen and Macron for last two are very short (less than 1.5), as most people think that Fillon has been too damaged by ongoing corruption proceedings and will be eliminated in the 1st Round. Whether Macron or Fillon get through with Le Pen, they will be strong favourites and their price will plummet after the 23rd of April.

Le Pen / Macron / Fillon / Mélenchon

24.5/ 23.5 / 18.5 / 17.0 - Ifop-Fiducial

25.0/ 24.0 / 20.0 / 16.0 - OpinionWay
23.0/ 23.5 / 18.5 / 18.0 - Odoxa

It's the Fillon / Mélenchon battle which is interesting. Mélenchon has hit 18/19% in 3 of the last 5 polls, three weeks ago he was on 12% with Hammon the socialist on 13%. Hammon is now sub 10% and for the first time Mélenchon  is now level pegging or only 1% and 0.5% behind Fillon.
Their prices on betfair 6.0 and 20.0, yet Mélenchon has all the momentum. The question is what is the floor for Hammon (his votes have likely moved to Mélenchon) and is Mélenchon attracting some of the 30% undecided voters. If there's one Guy who has the potential to shorten over the next weeks or so it has to be Mélenchon

I also (think) that those Macaroon poll figures are being artificially boosted (no doubt there).
Report MartinK April 8, 2017 11:27 AM BST
I'm pretty much focused on who'll get through the first round at this point.

There is an element of that with the 30% - but it's conjecture. Lets face it the main parties are having a horrible time. The key element for Mélenchon and the first round is how many of Hammon's socialist supporters will be willing to switch to him if he's seen to have a chance, now Hammon looks like a definite also ran.

If Macron numbers are inflated then with Fillon and Le Pen splitting the right, Mélenchon becomes a definite possible for getting through the first round.

It’s worth noting Mélenchon enjoyed the same momentum in the run up to the first round in 2012, when polls put him at 16 percent, just behind Le Pen. In the end he gained 11 percent of the vote. But remember that year it was a socialist who won - this year the Socialist is fading fast, and many of their  vote will go in Mélenchon's direction.

Unlike our own Corbyn, Mélenchon is both charismatic and a fine orator and it was his performances in the two debated which have seen him surge.

Mélenchon has drifted out from his 20.0 of last night back to 26. There will be new polls on Monday, and if he solidifies his position on the 18/19 mark - or even better over the next week we'll see him drop under 20's again very soon. He could even be in single figures if he overtakes Fillon who is surely fatally wounded by the magistrate investigation into the Fake job for his wife.
Report CJ70 April 8, 2017 7:03 PM BST
I'd be very careful about the suggestion that Le Pen and Fillon are splitting votes. Le Pen is probably drawing from the left more than the right.

I can't disagree with anything else, it'll be interesting to see how far Melenchon can go without hitting the overly left leaning Macron vote.
Report MartinK April 9, 2017 7:44 AM BST
I'd have to admit to being a bit of a novice on the French political scene. I thought Fillon would be ditched after the wife fake job thingy and  went big on Francois Baroin, but that soon went south, then assumed the left would combine behind Benoit Hamon, but I did take out a saver on Melenchon just in case, thank goodness.

If half of Le Pens support is from the left, then she must have the most to lose from a surging Melenchon.

The latest BVA poll has Le Pen 23.0, Macron 23.0, Fillon 19.0, Mélenchon 19.0, Hamon 8.5. The change from last weeks BVA poll is - Le Pen -1, Macron -2, Fillon 0, Mélenchon +4, Hamon -3

If Mélenchon can peel between 0.5 and 1% from Macron, Le Pen, and  Hamon (which he more than did last week) we would have Mélenchon, Macron and Le Pen all around the 22% mark, well within the margin of error.

There are also a third of voters who haven't decided yet.

Don't get me wrong Mélenchon is no slam dunk, but the market is seriously underestimating his chances.

Here is a note from the latest BVA poll on Macrons figures (via google translate):

Note: Emmanuel Macron remains the candidate most often chosen "by default", by 33% of his potential voters against 23% for the average of the candidates. And among its "hesitant" voters, nearly one in two declares "still waiting to be fully convinced"
(48%, 11 percentage points higher than the average for the candidates). These indicators illustrate a certain fragility of the vote of conviction for Emmanuel Macron as the ballot approaches.

@Martin - your "painting" seems to [ possibly ] hold more substance than my "gut" ..

All suggestions say Le Pen cannot win - who-ever she is up against ..

I just wonder [ as I have no idea - left & right ] .. who's votes will or should go to who ..

Is it simply a case of all losers vote AGAINST Le Pen ??

I have this [ in mind ] at the moment  [ percentage wise ]

26    Le Pen
21    Macron
19    Fillon
19    Mélenchon
9    Hamon
6    Others


So - possible 2nd round  [ I assume only 2 go through ]

Le Pen - Fillon
Le Pen - Mélenchon

Others may argue - but my mind says that.

So where do the loser votes go .. only one of these can go through

Macron
Fillon
Mélenchon
& the other 15%

Seems its a real complicated affair.
Report CJ70 April 11, 2017 9:32 AM BST
It's very difficult to say where the vote share of losers will split. There will be Le Pen voters from all of them, but heavily outweighed by anti Le Pen voters. It depends on how much the Le Pen lead is after the first round I guess and the momentum that brings.

The interesting one is if Melenchon makes it, Le Pen would then be seen as the more moderate candidate economically. Fillon voters should be the least likely to go Melenchon in theory, but it's a case of hard left economics and extreme hard left economics. Will they just not turn up?

Macron voters will probably split 80 to 20? as the leftists go to Melenchon while the 'I hate all political parties' go to Le Pen?

Hamon, LO, NPA & LR voters should be 100% to Melenchon.

If Fillon makes it then Le Pen has the best chance, she should get a good lump of votes from the Melenchon camp while many Macron voters will not want to touch someone mired in scandal, will they go Le Pen or will they not turn out?

Macron v Le Pen should be a walkover as Macron stands for little and it's just more of the same, an easy anti-vote.

Just some musings.

As I suspected, the french elite have found a way of stopping Le Pen.  Their weapon/puppet is called Macron

Terrible for the French people and the future of Europe that the global and French elite have rallied around Macron.

He could not be worse on all the key policies for the working people. He could not be better for the banks, big business and the global elites.

If he wins, as seems likely, it will be green light for more EU integration, more immigration, more open borders, less tax for big business, more intervention in places like Syria and more denial of the causes of terrorism.

Come on IT dont give in - Le Pen is in the second round - the French people still have an opportunity to

vote Nazi - lets see if they take it.

Which one do you think is Nazi?

The one who want France to be sovereign and take back powers for the French people or the one that wants to hand over the more of the state's powers to the German dominated undemocratic EU?

it was her father who denied holocaust. Madame le pen and the Insidertrader's xenophogey betfair brigade hates black africans and muslims. Make them seethe again. The dutch clown was evens to be president. And Madame le pen will lose as well. My prediction 38 % for her.

Does anyone know when Betfair will remove the eliminated candidates from the market? I have big reds on candidates who can't win, and I'd rather not have to wait another 2 weeks to get access to the funds.

1.01, now. The French have seen what has happened in the UK and in the USA, and said, "Non, merci." Thank Goodness for that! Maybe we can still have some sanity in Global Politics, after all.
