… The French Right has a Very Good Chance {#winning]…

.. Francois Fillon has become a very Strong candidate for President of france . He persuaded a FOrMEr Pres , Nicholas Sarkozy , to withdraw from the race . The French Right held a primary in order to select their candidate . So far , the Socialists are not doing so . Fillon won and is in a strong position to win the national election  ..

.. The Socialists have a serious problem . Incumbent Pres Francois Hollande is running for re – election .. As many as 3 other candidates , including current pm Maniel ValLS , are going to RUN . which creates a serious problem for Hollande . The Socialists have no primary like the Right does . Ergo , All 4 Socialists will be on the ballot in the first round of the eLEction ..

.. France runs their elections in a similar method to the u.s. state of Louisiana . The 1st round is A ” jungle primary ” , where everybody is on the ballot . If nobdy gets to 50 % , then the top two vote getters advance to a runoff election . Because of this , the Socialists , incl. Hollande , risk not getting thru to the runoff .

… Interesting Ad [Louisiana US Senate] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 18th,2014

.. that the DummyCraps are not going to like , not one bit .

.. Senator Mary Landrieux [D-La] is going to be very popular this election cycle . Her political position has become very , very precarious . She is either even in the polls with her potential (likely Republican) opponents , or she is trailing them . Worse for her , she is well below 50 percent in the polls . That is the ” danger ” zone for any incumbent …

.. Louisiana is an unusual byrd . It has what is known in the elections trade as a ” jungle ” primary . Democraps , Republicans , and Independents , everybody runs in the primary , which is held on the regular Election Day [in November] . If the first place winner gets 50% + 1 vote , then they are elected . If not , then the top 2 finishers , regardless of party , go on to the runoff election (usually held about 5 to 6 weeks later) .

.. this year , Landrieux should make the runoff , but it is not guaranteed . If she is the only Dem , then she will make it . If another Dem with any support runs , then she is in deep doo – doo . She and a republican will move on to the (December) runoff election . Depending on the General Eleection results , control of the Senate could be in the balance .

.. I think that she will go . Ads like this one will be thick as fleas all year long …
