French candidates boost security ahead of tense vote

The Cevipof poll of 11,601 people showed first round support for Le Pen falling 2.5 percentage points since early April to 22.5 percent and backing for Macron down 2 points to 23 percent.

He said more than 50,000 police, gendarmes and soldiers will be deployed in France and its overseas territories on Sunday and for the decisive second-round vote on May 7.

This isn't the first time Mélenchon has used holographic technology.

Terrorist Plot - French police have arrested two men suspected of plotting an attack just five days before the first round of France's presidential election.

Russell's HR caps 4-run 9th as Cubs top Brewers 7-4
Travis Shaw did the most damage for the Brewers, going 3 for 4 with a home run and a pair of doubles in addition to 3 RBI. Wade Davis got his third save and the bullpen retired 15 of its final 16 batters as the Cubs snapped a four-game skid.

A Macron presidency would beg the question can he win a majority in the parliamentary elections that follow in June.

This was, until late January, seen as the most likely outcome.

Despite his recovery, Fillon is arguably in fourth place. A win for Macron with Fillon in second place would restore faith in centrist politics, which has been eroded ever since last year's Brexit vote in the United Kingdom and Trump's triumph in the US Presidential election. He may, nevertheless, have a smoother run to a parliamentary majority than Macron or Le Pen, given that he has a party structure in his The Republicans grouping.

Opinion polls show Macron beating Fillon easily in the second round. How the FN fares in the parliamentary elections that follow in June would be crucial.

Celtics Coach: If Smart made a gesture, 'it's unacceptable'
He is the most exciting, awesome player in the game today. "He's trying to get back as quick as he can", coach Quin Snyder said. It also helps that Rajon Rondo is playing like vintage Rondo, the point guard who masterminded the Celtics' title run in 2008.

This would be the biggest shock for financial markets, with two populist, anti-EU candidates, to the far-left and far-right of the French political spectrum. This is still well within the margin of error, so the prospect of Far Left and Far Right second round run-off in May can not be ruled out.

Other figures from polling firm Kantar Sofres show that whilst leading candidates Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen are still the frontrunners, their margin is becoming much smaller. He too, though, would want to overhaul the European Union or pull France out. "France must definitely assist in this struggle for recognition, both due to its status of the homeland of human rights, and for the great numbers of Armenians who found refuge here and got successfully integrated", Marine Le Pen said.

"He has the experience, the desire and the project that will allow France to ensure an alternative to the last five disastrous years that we have experienced, (under Socialist president Francois Hollande)" Mr. Sarkozy said in a video message posted on Facebook - a rare foray into the campaign by him.
