Ms Le Pen, 48, would come first in the first round of voting in the upcoming election, according to a survey carried out by Opinionway.

The controversial leader would secure 26 per cent of the vote compared to the En Marche candidate Emmanuel Macron with 24 per cent and trailed by the centre right Republicans candidate Francois Fillon.

However, with less than four weeks to go until the initial voting, Ms Le Pen would likely lose out in the second round with the former socialist Mr Macron beating Ms Le Pen in the run-off vote by a margin of 61 per cent to 39.

The same poll also indicated she could also lose out Mr Fillon, the former Prime Minister, should be make it through to the second round with a 58 percent share of the vote, compared to 42.

The new poll comes just days after a survey just six days ago gave Ms Le Pen a four point lead over Mr Macron.
