La Croix profiles the six candidates for the Socialist Party primary - admitting most French voters don't know who they are or what the differences are between their policies.

Le Parisien calls the idea of a primary vote a lost bet for the socialists, saying many French voters don't even know the poll is happening, and a majority of those who do are totally uninterested.

Liberation blames misleading opinion polls - for influencing people's ideas.

Le Figaro is more interested in right-wing politicians - they're talking about Dominique de Villepin's chances of making a political comeback.
