5:35 am
head-to-head contest is a long time. my theory is that they will be found wanting. he clearly doesn't have a firm local ideology other than just supporting the e.u. and the status quo. it is not going to be a 20-point win for macron. trained you don't think a 60% less spam% for her. we will see. the difference about the populist movement of the united kingdom and the united states for that matter. >> well, in many ways they're very similar. the difference in france is the history of this is the french national plan. this has led by marine le pen's father for many years. there were some unsavory aspects to that. in his leg in the 70s and
5:36 am
80s for people who deny the holocaust. it seemed to be a very chauvinistic political party. that is why last night romantically with marine le pen did was stand down effect delay to fight this presidential election for the next two weeks as an independent. the difficulty with populism in france is the vicinity or someone savory. >> she needs a wider range of voters here. where is the support coming from exactly and who does she need to exactly and who does she need to come to reside now? >> well, she's already picked up a lattice work from the left. just look at the map. northern france, eastern france in southern france to support her. she is doing well in areas where in the past the socialist party did well and that is linked to jobs. to win over the course of the next couple weeks, she's got to
5:37 am
get 20% of people who voted for the conservative to vote for her. instinctively, many of those conservatives will be nervous about the rise of terrorism. concerned about the powers of the european project and that is where macron is weak or she has to those conservatives. nicole: that's right. whether novice or not they have to choose between the two. your view of over the next couple of years. the royal back when they're nervous about the union and leaving the european union and yesterday they celebrate everything status quo. what happens to the european union. >> there's been a huge extended told them brackets.
5:38 am
the markets have an idea of rationality. they say the status quo with the european union and the onset of banks tell me what is the european union. single market and single currency for growth. just as we saw the same analyst to the stock market is that 21% higher in london and will be voted to leave. the same people said they trump victory would leave for the u.s. market going down. >> nothing but be certainty for the markets. it hasn't formally have been. that remains a little bit uncertain. lauren. lauren: let me ask you, how is great britain doing now that they've made steps to move the european union? it would take two years.

5:40 am
terrorist free trade deal with us. whether economic logic or veils or politically they decide they would rather be seen to punish britain for daring to leave the club. i remain as seen. america tries to tear up in the u.k. a trade deal. china trades about a trade deal. ultimately trade deals can help, but ultimately business is about user product for the right price and reliability and if it is, people will buy it. train for the french elite going back to rent support macron. they say marine le pen would endanger france. what do you say to that? imac look, it isn't just the french elite that back sunday. mrs. merkel, president obama, public will believe that macron because they believe in supranational government for countries like france give away key decision-making powers to
