A similar scheme for the departmental
For the first round of the departmental 2021 in Hauts-de-France, the results are more or less the same as the regional ones: the right is on the rise while Marine Le Pen’s party is retreating and the left is gaining a little ground .
In the Picardy departments, the highest score of the right is 39.47% in the Aisne.
The highest RN scores are found in Aisne and Oise with 31.25% in both departments.
On the Somme side, same rise of the right with 38.81%. The RN falls with 22.91%. The left comes in second with 34.05%.
In the North, the right is still in the lead with more than 35% of the vote. The National Rally fell back quite clearly since it lost more than 7 points (24%).
While in Pas-de-Calais, the various lists of lefts (US, UG, DVG, ECO) collect 40% of the votes. Behind, the RN lists bring together 29% of voters, 6% less than 6 years ago. A clear decline for the party of Marine Le Pen.
An exploding abstention rate
