Could GWB be more popular than Chirac . . . in France?
Scott raises the question, havin read this article, Chirac Popularity Plunges to Record Low, Poll Shows (emphasis mine):
Chirac’s approval rating fell 8 points to 24 percent this month, according to a survey of 1,000 French people conducted from May 30-31 for Le Figaro Magazine. No margin of error was given. That’s the lowest since TNS-Sofres started surveying voters in 1979 under President Valery Giscard d’Estaing.
In the meantime, Sakozy’s positioning himself as strong on law and order, and distancing himself further from Chirac by saying things like Franco-German axis obsolete, says Sarkozy, and proposing an EU “engine” of six states: Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Poland.
Update Via Roger,
France Sarkozy reintroduces border controls in EU France.
