April 3: French voter intentions for presidential race

Latest update : 2012-04-16

This BVA opinion survey released 19 days before the first round of the French presidential vote confirms that there will be a tight race, with Socialist challenger François Hollande (28%) running neck-in-neck with incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy (27%).

The poll also shows an increase in support for left-winger Jean-Luc Melenchon (14%), who is edging closer to third place, with far-right leader Marine Le Pen (15%) having lost one point since our March 27 survey.

Centrist leader François Bayrou (11%) is holding steady while Green Party leader Eva Joly (2%) has continued to lose ground.
