The rise of populism and the failure of traditional parties during the 2017 French presidential election calls to question the relevance of traditional determinants of voting. Given the difficult economic context associated with François Hollande’s term, to what extent has the increasing pessimism in France contributed towards anti-establishment voting? Available surveys reveal two remarkable phenomena. The extremes, particularly the extreme right, are strongly associated with dissatisfaction and pessimism; a fact that cannot be fully explained by voters’ socio-economic characteristics. The contrast between extreme left and right’s voters has evolved, however, especially since 2010. Today, the extreme right has become significantly unhappier than the extreme left.
