The poll comes just a day after Macron’s surprise announcement of a snap election following his party’s defeat in European parliamentary elections. The two-rounds of voting will take place June 30 and July 7.

The online survey conducted on Sunday and Monday interviewed 2,744 people with a margin of error of between 1.4 and 2.5 percentage points.
