Fickle French

Does anybody pay attention to this stuff? Martine Aubry, 67% approval, because she managed to squeak past Royal? Bernard Kouchner, down from 79 to 69 because he criticized Rama Yade, approved by 66%, of whom 61% say it's because of her "courageous stands" on human rights? Aubry over Royal 60 to 33 among all the French, but only 52 to 44 among Socialists (who had them 50-50 a short while ago, no?)? I report these things every once in a while, just to show how bogus they are.

For the PS, I've got an answer:
Only about 10-12 are involved in any sample. Seeing how divided they are, and since the 10-12 are not sub-divided into branches (Aubry, Hamon, Royal, etc), the numbers simply reflect the handful picked, not socialists. If next week their 12 socialists lean toward Royal, you'll see an incredible surge, and vice versa....
