Young Sarkozyans

Membership of Les Jeunes Populaires, the UMP youth wing, is up from 10,000 to 45,000 in the years since Sarkozy took over the party in 2004. Although Royal handily won the under-30 vote, this figure, and the post-election "Sarkozy effect" on recruitment, have to be worrisome to the opposition.
