If one reads France24's vignettes of the young, left-wing voters before the 2nd round of the 2022 French presidential election, you could almost swear none were going to vote Macron:
- "Macron or Le Pen, we're screwed in any case. For my first election, I'd hoped for better" [film student]
- 'Blank ballot or Le Pen vote' [...] "Marine Le Pen is better than Macron on social issues. And Macron, after all, put cabinet ministers in office who conducted far-right policies [...] I find the protectionism that Marine Le Pen is proposing more interesting than Macron's ultra-liberalism" [another 18-y.o. student]
- "I will cast a blank ballot," [3rd student]
- [4th student said she would not vote in the 2nd round of pres. election, but] "I'm clinging to the legislative elections to get a left-wing majority."
So did Macron get any votes from young, left-wing voters in the 2nd round? Are there any post-election/exit polls to see how many young left-wing voters stayed home, how many cast blank votes, and how may voted for Le Pen or Macron, in the end?
