Liberals and socialist the big losers in French election

Washington Post:
French political parties upended as right-wing Le Pen, centrist Macron head to runoff for president

With opponents conceding, far-right anti-immigrant firebrand Marine Le Pen and unconventional centrist Emmanuel Macron advance to a May 7 vote that could further the worldwide march of anti-globalization populists.
This appears to be a rejection of current policies on the economy and immigration.  It is also a vote against the terrorists who have plagued France.  I expect that Macron will be the favorite in this runoff, as the left tries to find a way to vote against Le Pen.
