Sarkozy gains in French presidential race: Poll

A new poll indicates conservative President Nicolas Sarkozy is gaining ground against Francois Hollande.



Paris: A new poll indicates conservative
President Nicolas Sarkozy is gaining ground against
front-running Socialist Party nominee Francois Hollande in
their expected faceoff in France`s presidential election this
spring.

Published in Sunday newspaper Journal du Dimanche, the
poll shows Sarkozy would still lose, but by 46 per cent to
Hollande`s 54 per cent, compared with 57-43 per cent in the
weekly`s previous poll in November.

Sarkozy hasn`t yet announced whether he will run, but
most political observers believe he will. Most recent polls
show that he would qualify for the May 6 finale of the
election after the April 22 first-round vote.

The IFOP agency conducted the poll from January 4-6,
questioning 1,163 pre-selected participants who were
considered to be representative of a cross-section of French
voters. No margin of error was given.
