French president Nicolas Sarkozy’s approval rating rose 8 points in a month to the highest since February 2010 following his reaction to Europe’s sovereign debt crisis, a CSA poll for Les Echos showed.
The proportion of French voters who have confidence in Sarkozy to deal effectively with the country’s problems expanded to 40 percent, according to the poll published in the French newspaper today.
While Socialist Francois Hollande topped popularity ratings in the poll, he lost 5 points in the period. About 51 percent of voters said they had a “positive image” of Hollande.
CSA surveyed 1,006 voters on Nov. 7 and Nov. 8. No margin of error was given.
