Putin's natural Candidate..... Francois Fillon for his stance on Russia and sanctions now discredited and Macron coming to the fore....
his backing should fall to Le PEN's party, or as she prefers just Marine ( for the xenophobic ideology associated with her family name ) as his next choice she did back him on Crimea and sanctions ............. So how to get rid of the front runner Macron .......................

French presidential frontrunner Emmanuel Macron 'targeted by Russian-controlled state media'
Frontrunner candidate could be target of 'fake news' because he wants a strong Europe to stand up to Russia
The French Presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron has been the victim of thousands of cyber attacks by Russia, his party has claimed.
A top aide for the election frontrunner – and rival to Marine Le Pen – says Mr Macron has been the target of false reports spread by state-controlled media, including Russia Today and Sputnik.
Richard Ferrand, the campaign manager for Mr Macron's En March party, also claimed the party had been hit by hundreds, if not thousands, of attacks on their computer system.
Mr Macron is a staunch pro-European and it is widely thought he is likely to have been targeted because he wants a strong Europe that could stand up to Moscow,.
It comes after French intelligence warned of growing concerns about the risk of a Russian cyber attack in support of far-right candidate Le Pen.
French intelligence agencies believe Russia could use "social media thanks to automated robots that would generate thousands of positive messages or by collecting emails and confidential information from its adversaries".
