Le Pen et le peuple. Géopolitiques du vote FN en Languedoc- Roussillon

Abstract : In the French presidential elections of 2012, Marine Le Pen has reached 23,5% of votes in Languedoc-Roussillon region, nearly 6 points higher than her national average, however regarded as a success for the National Front. The evolution of FN discourse underlines the hypothesis of a renewal of the party, which now claims to be the expression of "the people invited at elites’ banquet". Geographical approaches insist, in turn, on this vote as the expression of the “suburban malaise”. In this paper, we first discuss this approach by addressing the electoral geography of the National Front in one of its main territories of influence. Then we discuss the idea that this electoral behavior would have become the dominant expression of dominated people. The first part focuses on areas of strength of the FN vote and what they tell us about its regional dynamics. The second part concerns the characteristics of the vote in the most popular areas of the region. Instead of beeing their electoral bastions, popular and dominated neighbourhoods are, more than others, résistant to the FN political stream.
