Mr Macron, who heads a campaign group called On the Move, was at 21 per cent compared with 22 per cent for Mr Fillon, 62. A Fillon aide would not comment, saying a judicial process was under way.

Le Canard Enchaine newspaper has questioned how much work she did for the money between 1998 and 2012.

Recent polls show falling support for Fillon, whose main rivals are far-right candidate Marine Le Pen and centrist Emmanuel Macron.

On Sunday Fillon hit back at the allegations telling a packed rally his critics should "leave my wife out" of the election.

"I want to tell Penelope that I love her and that I will never forgive those who tried to throw us to the wolves", he told the crowd, to chants of "Penelope, Penelope!"

In addition to the penalty, Deutsche is required to retain an independent monitor to review the bank's compliance programs. Bank will pay $425 million to settle an investigation by a NY state regulator into a $10 billion money laundering scheme.

Hamon would receive just 13 percent, according to the survey of 1,032 voters.

In the runoff to be held on May 7, both Fillon, a conservative, and Macron were seen winning if either was pitted against Le Pen, while Macron would beat Fillon in the knockout.

Fillon says her job "was real".

Fillon has vehemently denied any wrongdoing by him or his wife, insisting that when he was an MP in Paris his wife did a lot of constituency work.

Penelope, a mother of five, has always styled herself as low-key political wife who preferred to remain at the couple's country home rather than in Paris. She has not spoken publicly about the accusations.
