Via The Guardian, Macron wipes out Le Pen:
The centrist Emmanuel Macron is the next president of France, defeating his far right rival Marine Le Pen by a comfortable 65.1% to 34.9%, according to a usually reliable vote estimate by pollsters Ispos/Sopra Steria for French state TV and radio and Le Monde.
Vote estimates by other polling organisations for different French media show a broadly similar result, although some are showing marginal variations.
