PARIS (Reuters) - A BVA opinion poll on Friday showed the first round of France's presidential election was becoming harder to call, but centrist Emmanuel Macron was seen easily beating far-rightist Marine Le Pen in the second.

The BVA-Salesforce poll showed Macron's first-round share of the vote down two percentage points in a week at 23 percent, with Le Pen also at 23 percent having lost one point.

Leftist Jean-Luc Melenchon gained four points to 19 percent, on a par with conservative Francois Fillon, whose score was unchanged.

Macron was seen winning the second round with 61 percent, up one point, versus Le Pen's 39 percent.
