Le consultazioni elettorali del Brexit, delle elezioni americane ed adesso del Saarland hanno sistematicamente fornito risultati opposti a quelli forniti dai sondaggi elettorali.

I partiti ed i candidati delle sinistre sono usualmente sovrastimati di tre – quattro punti percentuali mentre quelli non di sinistra sono regolarmente sottostimati di altrettanta quota.

Non solo.

Nonostante una intensa, molto intensa, campagna di linciaggio morale, nonostante siano stati coperti di ogni sorta di indagine di una magistratura politicizzata, partiti e candidati non di sinistra sembrerebbero sopravvivere più che bene, fatto questo inspiegabile da parte dei liberals democratici americani ed alle sinistre europee.

Questo fenomeno è finito alla attenzione del Deutsche Welle, organo di stampa del Governo tedesco e corifeo del socialismo ideologico e della massoneria tedesca. Non riescono a comprendere quello che sta succedendo: la gente comune li sta abbandonando.

Fillon enjoys strong hometown support despite charges.

Gli ultimi sondaggi di venerdì scorso darebbero per le presidenziali francesi Mr Macron al 26%, Mrs Marine Le Pen al 26% e Mr Fillon al 17%.

Sono però in molti ad iniziare a dubitare che queste proiezioni saranno poi confermate dal voto popolare.

A dispetto dei sondaggi elettorali, Mr Macron è percepito come il braccio esecutivo della Banca Rothschild: un candidato senza partito che lo supporti. E questo potrebbe essere altamente penalizzante nelle votazioni per l’Assemblea Nazionale.

Al contrario Mr Fillon è percepito come uno del popolo, uno che lo rappresenta. Uno che si prende a cuore la condizione anche dei più piccoli dei francesi. Parla come mangia: non usa il politichese od il “politicamente corretto“.

Gli “scandali” dei quali è imputato Mr Fillon sono accuse, non fatti comprovati in giudizio, ed ogni Cittadino è innocente fino a sentenza cassata. Tutti hanno ben vivo il ricordo di Strauss-Kahn.

Francia. Dominique Strauss-Kahn e François Fillon. Vite parallele.

Francia. Sondaggio su 15,000 Elettori. Le Pen in testa.

Non solo. Se quegli “scandali” sono orrendi delitti agli occhi della sinistra, dell’élite al potere, sono invece bagatelle e falsità agli occhi della gente comune. Alla gente comune, che poi è quella che va a votare. Persone che hanno ben presente che la classe socialista dominante ha mangiato a destra e manca, fino ad immiserire larga parte dei francesi, specie i lavoratori dipendenti e gli agricoltori. Non è un caso che l’attuale Presidente in carica, Mr Hollande abbia una popolarità inferiore al 4%.

Infine, ma non per ultimo, nonostante il vivo stupore delle sinistre, i cattolici continuano ad esistere e si stanno organizzando per le competizioni elettorali. Questi non sono espressione di una Gerarchia politicamente schierata: sono i movimenti nati spontaneamente, fortemente coesi attorno a quella che è denominata essere la Santa Tradizione. Mentre il clero diocesano tende a scomparire, i movimenti cattolici sono ricolmi di vocazioni sacerdotali. Sono una maggioranza silenziosa, piccola quanto si voglia, ma che inizia a contarsi.

Francia. Dopo decenni di persecuzioni il voto cattolico è determinante.

Averli sottovalutati è stato un errore politico grossolano. Così come è stato un errore fatale alle sinistre il voler irrompere nella sfera etica e morale delle persone umane: non hanno guadagnato consenso alcuno e ne hanno perso in abbondanza. Si sono procurati nemici giurati.

* * * * * * *

Guardiamo quindi con grande sospetto i sondaggi elettorali disponibili e riteniamo del tutto aperta la competizione elettorale, sia quella presidenziale sia quella legislativa.

Prendiamo però atto di un fatto.

Il partito socialista francese si è frantumato in una congerie di formazioni elettoralmente irrilevanti: non esprime un candidato credibile alle presidenziali ed all’Assemblea Nazionale potrà vantare solo un pugno di deputati. In altri termini, al momento attuale sembrerebbe essere stato annientato.


Deutsche Welle. 2017-03-27. Fillon enjoys strong hometown support despite charges

Despite facing charges linked to a fake jobs scandal, French presidential candidate Francois Fillon continues to enjoy support among conservative voters. How is this possible? A visit to his hometown provides the answer.

*

Michel Dauton’s farm is situated just outside Sable-sur-Sarthe, the hometown of Francois Fillon. That is where he served as mayor from 1983 to 2001 and organized his political ascent. On the edges of the town there are a few bigger companies, mainly in the food-processing sector. Beyond lies the flat countryside of the upper Loire region. Dauton grows apples for use in the production of cider, in addition, he has Limousin cattle in his fields. “Agriculture here is very diverse,” said the farmer, who is also the spokesman for the local business association. And it is made up of small contributors, no industrial-scale production here. Old villages line the streets; this is the “deep countryside” that has always carried so much weight in French politics.

Fillon is ‘one of us’

“Francois Fillon always takes time to talk to people here and he’s interested in our problems,” said Dauton. That’s important for farmers, who face constant pressure from partners to lower prices. “We need a Europe that better protects our interests,” he said. For him, Fillon is the candidate with the closest ties to the land and agriculture. “What we need is someone with stature who can get the right reforms through.” He also likes the fact that Fillon is experienced; this is no time for newcomers, in his opinion.

And the scandals? “We are just a month away from a decisive presidential election, in a dangerous world,” said Dauton. That, he says, is more important than the price of Fillon’s suits or the colors of his ties. He is saddened by the fact that Fillon’s family is now being prosecuted. “I feel sorry for them both, and especially for his wife,” he said, adding that politics in France does need to become more moral.

Help from political Catholicism

In Sable-sur-Sarthe, Sunday is a day for going to mass. Father Bruno Meziere preaches to a full church. Young families as well as migrants pack the pews. “Our parish is associated with Aleppo,” he said. The collections go to benefit the destroyed Syrian city. He says that refugees from Syria, Iraq and other countries are all well integrated here; the congregation is very tolerant.

Francois Fillon used to come to mass here when he was mayor. But political support from the new Catholic movement in France is concentrated in Paris. “There are Christians in France that really go on the offensive to represent their faith. That’s come out of the demonstrations against gay marriage. There is a group of Catholics who feel they’ve been pushed to the fringes of politics in France,” said Father Bruno. The group calls itself “Sens commun” (common sense) and it was instrumental in helping Fillon to his victory in the primaries.

Mayor or feudal lord?

“When Francois Fillon was the mayor here, he ruled the place like a feudal lord,” said Gerard Fretelliere, a long-serving member of the local council and the left-wing opposition. As a local politician, Fillon was a centrist, but later as a minister he took a big step to the right. “He was always two-faced,” said his old opponent from Sable. “A lot of people here were happy when he became a candidate. They were hoping that we’d have a president who was from here. But it’s not nearly as rosy as that, because he would likely not be able to do much for this region,” said Fretelliere, adding that his programs are for the wealthy anyway.

He says that many locals were surprised by the scandal surrounding Fillon, because he always presented himself as being beyond reproach. “But then you dig a little, and stuff like this comes out,” he said. But he doesn’t have a bad word to say about Fillon’s wife, Penelope, just that no one in the village ever would have thought that she would work for her husband.

‘They’re all the same’

A few kilometers away on the picturesque banks of the Sarthe lies Beauce Manor, which Fillon bought at the start of the 1990s. Its history dates back to the 15th century. Farmer Hubert Olive says that it costs a pretty penny to maintain such a property. On a Sunday afternoon, he and his wife stand at the gates to the manor, looking through the bushes. “We just wanted to see how he lives,” Olive said.

He has a cattle farm, and is well versed in the problems facing small-scale farmers. “If I sell my meat for 3.50 euros a kilo, then it’s in the shop for 35 euros. The buyers push us to lower the cost,” he said. He’s also putting his hopes in Fillon. But don’t the charges about abuse of public funds anger him? “You know what, they’re all the same,” said Olive with a shrug, as if to say, it’s always been that way, and always will be.
