French exit polls: Macron on track to win with 60-66% of the vote

Turnout question: turnout is down from previous years, which would normally help a candidate with more hard core support like Len Pen. However, the highest abstention rates appear to be among those that voted for Melanchon and Fillon, the far-left and conservative candidates, two groups that Le Pen hoped to pull from in the runoff.

Media melee: The Le Pen camp is turning away reporters from her election night event, and other outlets are now saying they’ll boycott in solidarity.
