Jean-Michel Blanquer did not qualify for the second round of the 4th constituency in Loiret where he was parachuted. He received 18.89% of votes, behind Thomas Menager, the National Rally candidate (31.45%), and Bruno Nottin (19.43%), the Nupes candidate. He loses by 189 votes according to the final results.
The feat of qualification was not achieved by the former Minister of Education. An IFOP-Fiducial poll of the JDD placed Jean-Michel Blanquer second (23%), behind Bruno Nottin (28%), but ahead the RN candidate Bruno Nottin (22%). .
In recent weeks, the former Minister of Education had been making more trips to this area and promised to purchase a home there if elected. He did not receive a warm reception on the ground. Two Montargis teachers gave him whipped cream last Saturday.
On the right, the 4th constituency in Loiret is highly coveted. Marine Le Pen received 52% of votes in this constituency during the second round, which took place on 24 April.
