Hollande Sinks Among Young, Workers

President Hollande stands lower in the approval ratings at this stage of his presidency than did his predecessor. He is faring particularly badly with the young 18-24, only 30% of whom express confidence in his leadership, and with workers, 32% approve (a shocking 10 percentage points lower than a month ago).

Why is this not surprising? He has undone the few accomplishments of Sarkozy and has added none of his own.

I don't know. This Swiss podcast feature seemed to argue Holland is quietly pushing through some labor market reforms that could really push the country forward (even though the title sounds very pessimistic, I agree).
