Bayrou is not so smart: democratic party in french is "parti démocratique", initials PD. PD is a very used insult in French (to say gay). You can image jokes on it... In Belgium, a guy had the same idea but before this problem, changed his mind.

For the second turn, I predict a solid victory for Sarkozy, by 53,4%. No polls have given a Royal win for january. Her only chance is to have a very very good report from the far left votes, a very good penetration in the Bayrou vote (65% at least) and a bad report of the FN votes on Sarkozy. Probably of this scenario: weak.

A couple of questions for you as you appear to be particularly knowledgeable about French politicis:

1). Do you anticipate that the turnout will be significantly down in the final from the first round?

2.) Does Royal have the problem of, as the Brits would put it, "falling between two stools" by trying to round up the votes of the lefties and simultaneously appealing to the Bayrou voters?

Breaking News...

Le Pen calls on his voters to stay home in second round.

If that has any impact, Sarkozy may well be toast.
It probably doesn't have much impact though...

Link? That may be big news. Most of the ones who would ignore Le Pen probably voted for Sarkozy in the first round anyway (the ones who voted Le Pen in 2002 and Sarkozy in 2007).

It'd be big news only if it was unexpected to Le Pen voters - and I'm not so sure of that. It's completely in character.

Here's a link - not my original source of the news o/c (which was in German)

Thanks, I speak French well enough. I'd much prefer for them to simply air it live on tv.

No, I don't think Sarkozy is toast because of this. This doesn't mean 100% of FN voters will stay home.

I heard that Royal is doing well amongst male voters while women are supporting Sarkozy. I find this odd, does anyone have any info?

I don't blame them for mocking me. I have a known hatred for the French but I am interested in following their elections and Sarkozy is actually a good guy for the U.S.

2.) Does Royal have the problem of, as the Brits would put it, "falling between two stools" by trying to round up the votes of the lefties and simultaneously appealing to the Bayrou voters?

1) Polls say that turnout should lower than the first round (80%). Some far left and far right voters should not vote.

2) Not really, because the far left vote is weak. Royal tries not really to catch the far left vote (just the minimum), she tries to catch the Bayrou vote but she will fail I think because in the bayrou vote, you have center-left people who were not happy with the royal's incompetence and they will vote royal at the second turn but you have also the "udf voters", who are at right (more conservative than an ump voter but more left on economy. But not great difference). The game is to know the proportion of both in the 18,5%. 50% 50% maybe. Not enough for Royal.

During the sunday meeting, Sarkozy has not tried to tend to the center. He stays on his values, bashing "may 1968", the cause of all problems in France. And one more time, it's Sarkozy who decides the agenda. For now, this guy is probably the best candidate, the best politician, the best communicator  that I have seen in my short life.

against Aubry, Sarkozy will win. Aubry is a very bad candidate for prime time : no charisma, no sympathy, muslim connection, stupid ideas,... and sarkozy is a good candidate...
