Kiss of death?

In April of last year, Barack Obama decided to interfere in the Brexit referendum, throwing his support behind the Remain side, which at the time was widely expected​ to win. Several weeks later, the referendum was held, and Remain lost.

Then in June, Mr. Obama decided to interfere in the Democratic presidential primary, throwing his support behind Hillary Clinton, who at the time was widely expected to win the general election. Several months later, the general election was held, and Mrs. Clinton lost.

Earlier this morning, Mr. Obama decided to interfere in the French presidential election, throwing his support behind Emmanuel Macron, who right now is widely expected to win.

Is the third time the charm, or was Mr. Macron just given the kiss of death?
