Two left-wingers in France's presidential race refused to call a truce Thursday in a battle that looks sure to knock them both out of a contest that polls say will be won by centrist Emmanuel Macron in a runoff versus far-right leader Marine Le Pen.Melenchon, a political veteran whose potential election score in polls has risen to as high as 15 percent in the past few days, several points above Hamon, said Wednesday he was not going to bow out in favor of a single Hamon candidacy.A Harris Interactive poll found that 53 percent of voters felt Hamon should pull out of the race in favor of Melenchon, a firebrand left-winger who quit the Socialist Party several years ago and is now candidate of the Left Party (PG), or what the French call "the Left of the Left".
