Under a week before Emmanuel Macron faces Marine Le Pen in the final round of the French presidential elections, we have a special episode looking at the latest polling and what the candidates will be trying to achieve in the final days of their campaigns.
Europe correspondent Ido Vock is joined by Paul Hilder, the founder of Datapraxis, – a strategy company which has been polling the French election – to discuss whether Macron is doing enough to win over left-wing voters, widely viewed as the kingmakers in the second round.
