According to a recent poll, most Bayrou voters will go to Hollande in the second round rather than to Sarkozy--assuming that Sarkozy makes it to the second round!
Selon ce sondage, 46 % des électeurs de M. Bayrou se reporteraient au second tour sur M. Hollande, contre seulement 32 % sur M. Sarkozy.Perhaps even more interesting, 31% of Le Pen voters will go to Hollande versus only 35 to Sarkozy! Of course this can be read 2 ways: Le Pen has made major inroads into the pool of voters who normally vote for the left, or Sarkozy has lost his appeal to the xenophobic right. Probably both are true.
