I'd very reluctantly vote for Sarkozy but fortunately I am not confronted with that choice!

Probably Eva Jo-ke-ly in the 1st round and Hollande in the 2nd round.

France is a country which really lacks good political alternatives.

I guess protest vote for Dupont-Aignan in the first round. In the 2nd round I'm not really sure. Both candidates seem intent on destroying the French economy.

This is supposed to be new? All candidates in runoffs since 1974 have been intent on destroying the economy.

Nope, never said that. The French elections that I've followed have certainly all had that characteristic.

Hollande. But Melenchon could be an option for the 1st round, too.

LOL, Dupont-Aignant is the most overrepresented (relatively speaking).

And still no love for Cheminade. Tongue

ftr, the poll on my blog (58 votes) is more balanced: Sarko and Hollande tied at 24%, Melenchon 17%, Bayrou 15.5%, Marion 10%, Joly 5.2%, Arthaud 3.5%. No love for either NDA, Cheminade or Poutou Sad

Yeah, I already noticed that the readers of your blog tend to be more right-wing than the forum.

I did just cause I didn't like anyone and he seemed rather bland and thus the least likely to screw up the country as bad as the others might. I was wondering if anyone supported him actually based on his policy.

And something like 13% of voters support that (according to polling)?

had a dream last night.  in which I were Melenchon and upset Sarkozy for second place, and gave a victory speech.  I was only able to talk in English but nobody seemed to mind.  I spoke about how were were going to need a mass social movement to defeat Hollande in the runoff, and that social movement would have to continue through after we won in order to resist the IMF, EU, etc.

If Mélenchon made his victory speech in English, his voters would probably accuse him of capitulating against the globalized Anglo-Saxon financial oligarchy. Tongue

But fun dream anyways.

Melenchon <3

Even if Hollande wins, it'll be a vast improvement though.
