Macron vs. Le Pen: Unprecedented Choice in French Presidential Election (part 2)

Description

For the first time since World War Two, neither the main center-left or center-right parties in France will be on the ballot. Instead it's far-right nationalist Marine Le Pen versus 39-year old centrist Emmanuel Macron. Will the next two weeks exacerbate the divide between those who see globalization as an opportunity and those who fear it? Will it spark the same bitterness and resentment that emerged during the Brexit campaign? And is Emmanuel Macron such a shoe-in to beat Marine Le Pen?
