Electoral suicide, French style

Ouest France, very kindly, has polled Gauls on what they think of the French Socialists, and even more kindly, Libération has published the figures a day early.

Ségo, Delanoë et al are reckoned to be letting down La Patrie by failing to oppose Sarko's / Fillon's government with sufficient vigour (52%), understanding the preoccupations of the man on the Limoges autobus (55%), not to have good leaders (66%), and not knowing what it is doing (67%).

As to what the PS should do, 41% of Gauls want it to get into bed with Bayrou's MoDem (sort of Lib Dem types), 30% to link with the non-Trot extreme left (PCF, Greens) and 18% want it to cosy up to baby-faced rot postie Besancenot's Trot rabble. Curious bunch. As to left leaning voters, 45% want a menage à trois with the broad extreme left and 12% with the Trots. Were I Gaullist I would be very very keen on a link with as many loons as possible, popular fronts being unlikely to be all that popular with the aforementioned Limogeois/e passager d'autobus.

As to who will lead the Socialists to the sunny uplands of the voters hearts, the general populace want it to be Dominique Strauss-Kahn, currently the king over the water at the IMF, while leftists want Ségo to have another crack at it. Hope they choose Ségo again, as she has been a source of immense amusement with her 'curious' statements. Expect Sarkozy to have her, or any other contender, for petit déjeuneur in 2012.
