Reporting on the election has often been characterised by muddled terminology. The Political Compass has long pointed out that left and right essentially describe economics. Macron, for example, is regularly reported as being economically ‘liberal’ and socially ‘left wing’. In reality, Macron is a classic libertarian in the US sense, with a socially liberal outlook and, crucially, an extreme right wing (ie neoliberal) economic agenda. This mix appeals to a significant section of younger voters who, being steadfastly pro-business, dislike most forms of state engagement in either the economy or society in general. He‘s certainly the closest of the candidates to Social Darwinism.

Le Pen is similarly misrepresented as ‘extreme right wing’. Her extemism is in her social attitudes, not her economics. Indeed France’s National Front has often been economically to the left of the pre-Hamon Socialist Party in its attachment to the public sector and opposition to globalisation and privatisation. The party, with its strong strain of nationalism, might well be described as a form of national socialism.

Fillon, unlike Macron, marries conservative social policies with neoliberal economics; but this most establishment of the candidates is dogged with an undignified judicial enquiry that undermines his moral authority.

Hamon’s attempts to protray himself as different from the market-friendly Hollande Socialist Party may not convince a sufficient number of its disappointed core supporters. Mélenchon’s unpredicted surge in support reflects his appeal as an anti-establishment candidate of the uncompromising left at a time when the political establishment — and neoliberalism — are widely disliked.

One of the important questions of the election is whether this split in the left will again serve the interests of the National Front. Through ego, a distrust of Hamon’s socialist commitments or fear of personal political damage if aligned with an ideologically promiscuous party — or perhaps all three — Mélenchon has refused Hamon’s appeal to create a unified left. So far.

In the event of apparent policy shifts, the position of candidates on our chart will correspondingly alter.
