Emmanuel Macron's newly-formed Republique en Marche party is projected to have won at least 355 seats in Sunday's parliamentary election, meaning France's new president will have a parliamentary majority. Other takeaways:

  • Turnout was historically low, in a sign of disillusionment with the state of French politics.
  • Frederic Dabi of the IFOP polling firm told the AP that another factor could be the considerable confusion in France surrounding Macron's party, which recruited first-time candidates from both right and left of center, and has shaken up the traditional partisan divide.
  • Marine Le Pen of the far right Front National won a parliamentary seat for the first time, though results were mixed for her party.

What's next: Macron, 39, has won landslides in the presidential and parliamentary elections in a stunning political rise. Now all the power is in his hands, and expectations will weigh heavy on his shoulders as he sets out to govern.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said Saturday that she'll vote to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday, despite her opposition to the process that's recently transpired.

The big picture: Murkowski's decision leaves Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) as the only Republican expected to vote against Barrett.

This is one of the bigger signs of trouble for President Trump that we've seen in a poll: Of the final debate's seven topics, Joe Biden won or tied on all seven when viewers in a massive Axios-SurveyMonkey sample were asked who they trusted more to handle the issue.

Why it matters: In a time of unprecedented colliding crises for the nation, the polling considered Biden to be vastly more competent.
