Municipals: Electoral Geography

Those following the municipal elections will be interested in this interactive map from Le Monde. Note the east-west divide: if one draws a line from Lille to Montpellier, all but three of the cities likely to swing left are located west of the line. The strength of the UMP in the east was also apparent in the presidential elections, as I discussed in May and June of last year. I also discussed the correlation with immigration patterns.
