Economic anxiety, if by 'economic' you mean 'racial hegemony.'

Note support for Trump among non-college educated white women. Hope folks aren't still pushing that tired old 'economic anxiety' narrative

Note particularly that Trump enjoys high approval ratings from both college educated and non-college educated white men.

Historically low approval ratings mask the fact that a majority of whites support Trump.

It's a terrible dilemma as social rights will be stripped away by both candidates. I guess I'd do what was necessary to defeat the fascist.

This is precisely the point and I think I understand your previous tweet. Melenchon can't explicitly state that his position is closer to FN

Macron is in no way part of the extreme left. He's centre-right. Melenchon wishes to preserve his ideological purity, hence his demurrals

This article from last week gives a good overview on Melenchon's abstention--and how similar his position is to FN

American comparisons fail as these actors have been engaging in these dynamics for some time. The issue is about the centrality of class

Melenchon's refusal demonstrates FN's wild success over the last decade. Its politics are completely normalised. Extremism is now mainstream

Remember back in 2002 when Jean-Marie Le Pen got through to the second round and the political /media classes rallied around Chirac?

C'est pas une question affective mais politique... La vie politique française tourne vraiment autour du FN.
