The latest BVA survey of voter intentions puts Hollande on 29.5 percent, just two ahead of Sarkozy on 27.5. Far right candidate Marine Le Pen, who leads the National Front party stands in third place on 14 percent, just one percent ahead of her nemesis the far left candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon. 12 percent of those polled said they would vote for centrist candidate Francois Bayrou, who finished third in the 2007 elections. The Green’s Eva Joly comes in last with just two percent of those polled saying they would vote for her.
