Refusing to vote and not caring about the outcome is incredibly selfish. Look at what's going on in the US. If you rather vote for LePen/Trump then so be it. But refusing to vote for either because "b-b-but her emails..." then you're just selfish or ignorant.
Just read the answers to your own thread then, first page : http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost...9&postcount=29
Nobody here said they'd rather vote for Le Pen or Trump, or talked about emails, you made that up. Not voting doesn't mean you are voting for "LePen/Trump", it just means that you don't vote because, guess what, democracy gives you that power to chose in your own conscience if you want to support, or not, someone that shares, or not, your opinions.
Blaming people for their opinions is stupid, immature and won't support your cause in any way. Flawed rhetoric all the way.

A one round ballot would be even worse in the current situation, since the far right would be the most likely to be elected, and people could vote even less for the candidate they prefer (but it would be harder for them to identify who to vote for to counter it).
A one round ballot usually comes with a proportionnal representation and a parliamentary regime, and that means that the FN would need to make alliances with other parties, something they are far from being able to do. So they would be first in the results, but the likely outcome would be a coalition government and majority between parts of the left, parts of the right, or a centrists from both sides.
