April 10: French voter intentions for presidential race

Latest update : 2012-04-16

President Nicolas Sarkozy can’t quite catch up with Socialist challenger François Hollande in the first round of France’s presidential election, according to the latest poll, with the incumbent winning 27% of the votes against his rival’s 29.5%.

Meanwhile, far-left candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon and far-right candidate Marine Le Pen are fighting it out for third place, with the former garnering 13% of the votes and the latter getting 14%. Centrist François Bayrou is in fifth place, with 10.5%. Of the remaining five presidential contenders, Green Party candidate Eva Joly leads the pack with 2.5% of the votes.
