Emmanuel Macron is projected to come out on top in the first round beating Marine Le Pen
M Macron was seen winning 26 per cent of the vote in the April 23, first round followed by Mlle Le Pen on 25 per cent, according to the poll for France Televisions.
Both scores were unchanged from the last time the poll was carried out a fortnight ago, even though it was carried out after the two traded barbs in a televised debate on Monday involving all the main candidates.
Conservative candidate François Fillon saw his score slip to 18 per cent of the first round vote from 20 per cent as he struggles to limit the damage from a series of financial scandals.
Meanwhile, leftist candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon saw his share of the vote rise to 13.5 per cent, surpassing for the first time the score for the ruling Socialists candidate Benoit Hamon at 12.5 per cent.
