Le Pen got 34.5% of the vote overall. She won 38% of the male vote and 32% of the female vote. So, even faced with the prospect of France's first female president, women were more likely to vote against it than men.

See here for discussion of the police and military vote.

See this article for a religious breakdown. The Muslim vote went 92% for Macron.


  1. Thanks a lot for the data. Btw you can check my old feminism article again, i added some new stuff during the last year, so now it has more information, more studies, and more absolutely great references.

    1. Btw CZ here is some stuff that you can find useful: two absolutely great studies:
      The Radical Right Gender Gap in Europe

      Evolution and the psychology of intergroup conflict: the male warrior hypothesis

      and some other stuff:

      Contrary to popular myths, in terms of voting patterns, a higher proportion of male voters supported the NSDAP party compared to female voters.
      Stress response difference between men and women:
      Males fight or flee; females tend and befriend.

  2. I don't know if you covered this

    According to CNN’s coverage, Myslikova “made some profound comments.” If you want to know what she actually said, you’d have to translate an article that appeared in the French language publication the Paris Match. There, buried in the last paragraph, is a quote from the exchange between the Scout and the Neo-Nazi regarding immigration. When the Neo-Nazi asserted the teen would be “violated by those she defends,” Myslikova replied, “Even if something happened to me, the physical wounds always end up healing.”

    1. Well, thats not surprising. Females are more likely to develop the Stockholm syndrome and to have tend and befriend behavior when they feel threatened, unlike males, who respond with "fight or flight" when stressed or under threat. Being nice to the migrants feels better for her than angering them or starting a war, conflict, etc. See also my comment above.

  3. The age thing is interesting. So Le Pen did best with those 25-50 yrs, getting more than 2 in 5 votes. She does noticeably worse with the boomers. And worst of all with the oldest, even though that would presumably be the 'whitest' group and people are supposed to move to the ('far') right as they get older.

    It'd be interesting if one could factor ethnicity into this but I gather it's against the law in France to collate racial data. Le Pen probably did roughly as well with the 18-24 ethnic French as the 25-50 but the demographics get worse the younger you go.

  4. France has one of the most totalitarian laws ever enacted in a democracy that is the law against holocaust revisionism. The politically correct brigade always talk of human rights yet they don't even support the right to freedom of speech -
