57% turnout?  Isn't that low for France?

3% less than last time, which was already 4% less than five years earlier.

RIP Greece. RIP European Federalism.

FWIW, the combined total vote of leftist leaning parties was 48.62, that of the divided right 47.87, (I know, I know I'm not supposed to be adding the FN vote to that of the UMP and its allies, but I'm doing it for an overall read of the total left/right ideological result), Modem and others the rest.  With a left wing majority likely emerging out of this, I'm wondering if Hollande and others in the PS will rethink their support for proportional representation.

They most certainly will not. Uninominal voting is what keeps the PS rolling, and we see today how they could monopolize the left space, even though the Greens were between 12 and 16 two years ago, and the Left Front at 10 in 2011 cantonales and 11 on April 22nd...

There's absolutely nothing wrong with reporting a poll with decimals or even lesser digits once you know how to properly use margins of error. Of course an overwhelming part of the public doesn't, which is why polls shouldn't be reported with decimals in the media, but we're a knowledgeable bunch, are we not ?
