Not really convinced by the wording of the survey question, Valérie Pécresse declared: “I don’t know if the question is extremely well asked […]. I don’t know what people mean when they hear ‘danger to democracy’. What I know is that, for example, I saw that Madame Le Pen demonstrated against anti-Semitism.” The politician then highlighted the inconsistencies that there may be among members of the RN.
