57% turnout?  Isn't that low for France?

3% less than last time, which was already 4% less than five years earlier.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

FWIW, the combined total vote of leftist leaning parties was 48.62, that of the divided right 47.87, (I know, I know I'm not supposed to be adding the FN vote to that of the UMP and its allies, but I'm doing it for an overall read of the total left/right ideological result), Modem and others the rest.  With a left wing majority likely emerging out of this, I'm wondering if Hollande and others in the PS will rethink their support for proportional representation.

They most certainly will not. Uninominal voting is what keeps the PS rolling, and we see today how they could monopolize the left space, even though the Greens were between 12 and 16 two years ago, and the Left Front at 10 in 2011 cantonales and 11 on April 22nd...

I haven't seen anything pointing to a Brexit win at this point, when you factor in how a referendum actually works.
