This map showing the vote received by candidates of CPNT (Hunting, Fishing, Nature, and Traditions) reflects an interesting pattern seen in all others CPNT maps, the lands of “hunters”. It sounds silly as we’re used to “centrist lands”, “socialist lands”, but there is also “hunters land”. The Somme has always been where CPNT achieved their best results, in 1999 they won the department in the European elections. Jean Saint-Josse took over 10% in the department in the 2002 presidential elections. Nihous won only over 2.5% here in 2007, but even as the CPNT vote is in quick regression, it remains the best department for the party. In the 4th constituency, located around Abbeville, CPNT achieved it’s best result taking 8.9%, better than Nihous’ 5.38%. In the 3rd constituency, CPNT took over 6%, once again better than Nihous’ score here. Other hunter lands are in the Manche department, in Gironde and a few other spots here and there. The east of France, the urban areas all remain hostile to the rural party.
