Share this chart Editor's Remarks: For the first time in the Fifth Republic’s 59-year history, France must choose between candidates from outside the mainstream Socialist and Republican parties (though Marine Le Pen has built on years of steady growth in the far-right National Front’s support, and Emmanuel Macron came out of Francois Hollande’s Socialist government and a classic career path through France’s political class). Several major polls put centrist Macron comfortably ahead of his rival, ranging from a 21% lead to a 30% lead depending on the poll. Europe’s financial marke

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s decision to call an early general election came as a surprise to many, sending markets and pundits scrambling, but her party has little to be shocked about if current polling is anything to go by. An average of the most recent polls from YouGov, ICM, Opinium and Ipsos MORI puts the Conservatives 15% clear of their Labour opposition, with most-cited YouGov putting this lead at 21%. The reasons are many. In particular, May is happy to capitalise on the Labour Party’s weakness - but with the opposition posed by its unpopular

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: Of all the administrations in American history, Donald Trump’s is thought to top the list when it comes to wealth. The ten richest people in Team Trump command assets worth almost $2.1bn between them - and that’s according to just the lower bounds of the range of estimates given for each official by financial disclosure filings, meaning the real number could be a lot more. President Trump’s wealth dwarfs even their combined assets, though, with an estimated net worth of $3.5bn, as well as that of the second-richest US President after him, John F Kenne

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: Public opinion of Donald Trump has hit a new low, with just 37% of Americans surveyed approving of the job he’s doing as President. Past presidents have seen worse, though never this soon into their term: Bill Clinton, for example, had sunk to 37% by June, whereas Trump’s rating is the worst of any president in recorded history at this point into their first term. Though President Trump was creeping back to a neutral opinion in the public, the last couple of weeks has seen a major double blow. On the one hand, his bill to replace Obamacare has become mi

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: The race for the French Presidency has narrowed according to the latest polls which put Front National (FN) leader Marine Le Pen in a strengthened position going into the first round of voting. If right-wing Le Pen makes it through to the run-off, as part of France's two-staged presidential electoral system, she would likely be decisively defeated by either centre-left independent Emmanuel Macron conservative François Fillon, according to polls which have them 16% and 12% clear respectively in that scenario. However, her increase from a 27% deficit against

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: A new survey of the UK’s Members of Parliament shows just how divided they were going into last night's crucial vote to formally initiate Brexit. Britain’s Supreme Court decided that Theresa May would need approval from MPs before notifying the EU of the start of withdrawal negotiations, which she has now been granted by 498 votes to 114. This particular chart shows that most MPs who voted for Brexit in the referendum value the repatriation of borders over retaining single market access, whilst Remain-voting MPs are rather divided on the issue.

In roughly similar proportions, readers expect that China will continue along its present course, challenge the United States for regional and international power, or become a champion of the current system of globalisation and trade which has enriched the country dramatically the last few years. With Donald Trump's inauguration as the 45th President of the

The Eastern migration route from Turkey and Greece has fallen since improvements in Turkish policing but the EU have yet to work with the Italian law enforcers to curtail migration. With 80% of southern Italians voting against the constitutional changes, the referendum highlighted the Renzi government have neglected the problems that this region faces in light of the unprecedented migration.

Share this chart Editor's Remarks: After Trump was voted president by the American public on November 8th, the Google search for Will I Get Deported skyrocketed. This is because throughout Trump's campaign he pledged to deport all undocumented migrants. Since the election, Trump has furthered the cause for concern by appointing many staunch right-wingers to his future cabinet. Trump has vowed to deport three million migrants, a pledge which has seen him described as a racist by his critics. But the number of people Trump is promising to deport has decreased, as the perception that he will b
