French president François Holland probably would lose in case he run for re-election next year, the latest poll, published in Le Figaro on Tuesday, showed. The survey was conducted on September 2-5 among 1,006 voters.
According to the poll, Hollande would not pass the first round of voting. The current president would get11% to 15% of the vote in nine possible combinations of the various candidates.
Hollande, whose popularity declined significantly, hasn’t already announced whether he will run for a second term.
The results show that the conservative Republicans party and the far-right Front National nominees would make it to the second round if no candidate would garner an absolute majority.
The Republicans are still to decide on November primaries who will be their nominee. The race would be between former president Nicolas Sarkozy and former premier Alain Juppé.
On other hand, the Front National will be represented by Marine Le Pen, the daughter of the party’s outspoken founder, Jean-Marie Le Pen.
The current survey found that in the second round Le Pen will face either Sarkozy or Juppé.
In a runoff Juppé would get 33% and Le Pen 29%. In another, Sarkozy would reap 27% and Le Pen 29%.
The first round of voting takes place on 23 April, with the runoff on 7 May.
