    reports Paris Match.

    Support for the Republicans’s candidate is eroding among voters who opted for Nicolas Sarkozy in 2012, and also people in France who are less well off, and sceptical of his free marketeer reform ambitions. In vital categories, Fillon faces setbacks in support with minus 12 points among workers (8 per cent) and minus 11 among the wider middle and lower middle class (11 per cent).

    However, even if Le Pen wins the first round in April, polls published Tuesday show she could be defeated by 64 per cent to 36 per cent in the subsequent election runoff. According to the survey, independent candidate Emmanuel Macron, a former economy minister in France, would win 17 to 20 per cent of the vote in the first round.

    The poll results showed none of the four main contenders for the candidacy for the ruling Socialist party even reaching the second round in the scenarios put forward, but former Prime Minister Manuel Valls is currently favourite to fill the slot.

    Le Pen is a noted Eurosceptic and has promised to hold a referendum regarding France’s membership of the European Union (EU) following populist victories at the ballot box for Brexit and Donald Trump in 2016.

    Noting that Fillon “succeeded in his primary by identifying himself as a man of Catholic beliefs and values and an opponent of same-sex marriage and abortion”, veteran conservative columnist Pat Buchanan has said the front-runners this year in France’s presidential election indicate that people in Europe are tired of the western model of “liberal democracy”.

    Story continues:

    Ms Le Pen, who is currently leading in the polls, is visiting the city in a private capacity, according to her campaign chief David Rachline.

    Bloomberg quotes an unnamed aide to Donald Trump as saying the President-Elect has no plans to meet with Ms Le Pen.

    Mr Rachline also confirmed: “It’s not on her public agenda. We don’t communicate about private visits.”

    Marine Le Pen has been an outspoken supporter of President-elect Trump over the course of the United States Presidential election cycle. The visit comes after a number of meetings between the President-elect and Britain’s Nigel Farage, and has launched a raft of speculation on Twitter over the nature of the visit.

    One poll earlier this week put the Front National leader ahead of centre-right candidate François Fillon in the race to be France’s next president. The poll by Ifop-Fiducial put Ms Le Pen on 26 to 26.5 per cent support, while Mr Fillon was on 24 to 25 per cent.

    However, she may still face defeat thanks the France’s two-round electoral system, with 64 per cent of voters saying they would vote for Mr Fillon in a runoff between the two candidates.

    Ms Len Pen is gaining support with her populist, Eurosceptic policies. She has already pledged to renegotiate France’s membership of the European Union and put the result to a referendum. She has also signalled her opposition to France’s membership of the euro currency, which many French people blame for holding back the economy and impoverishing them.

    However, she has also gained large support for her strong-borders views and her opposition to Islamisation.

    Her popularity rose in particular after last July’s terror attack in Nice, when she called on then interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve to resign after a spate of Islamist attacks.

    “In any other country in the world, a minister with a death toll as horrendous as Bernard Cazeneuve – 250 dead in 18 months – would have resigned a long time ago,” she said.

    She added that the main cause of the wave of Islamist attacks in France is Islamic State and their “murderous ideology that we let develop in our country
