France’s primaries of the Socialists and the left have narrowed down to two finalists: former education minister Benoit Hamon and former prime minister Manuel Valls.

Or do voters simply want their left to be more left and their right to be more right, this as they grapple with an era of uncertainty over jobs, wages, and identity?
