This time, only two candidates were on the ballot — centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron and far-right candidate Marine Le Pen. Macron defeated his opponent by no small margin, winning 66.1% of the vote to her 33.9%. It wasn't a huge surprise as the controversial candidate saw support begin to waver in the weeks leading up to the elections.

Le Pen, who promised to drastically lower refugee numbers and hold a referendum on European Union membership, was unsurprisingly popular among Donald Trump and Brexit supporters.
