Is Macron a populist in the sense that we all understand?

It goes without saying that to win an election you have to be popular.

And let's not forget that Macron was a finance minister in Hollande's Govt, so you could be very cheeky and argue that this is a continuation Govt - by stealth.

Populist in the sense that neither traditional party was in either the run-off, nor won the Presidency.

However I don't think it's cheeky at all to call him the continuity candidate. What an awful choice for the French, as bad as the States.
