L'esprit des Français

Our French friends are in the throes of one of their bouts of weltschmerz, juding by IFOP's findings for Ouest France.

I didn't think much of the way that IFOP charted its data, so a bit of fiddling around with the data gave this:

As ever, click for legibility, but burgundy is negative and the rather attractive greyish-blue positive. Things to note, all pollees have managed to self-assess themselves as optimistic or pessimistic since August 2004, economic pessimism is at its worst since August '05 and in all available data, more than a third of pollees has always been pessimistic. Quite the rayons du soleil, eh?

Digging into the socio-economic etc findings, women are more pessimistic than men (70 / 63), Parisians perkier than the rest (63/68) - there's no break out for Auvergnats, which is a pity. The Communists (87%) and the extreme left (83%) are extremely pessimisitic about the economy, so must be on the verge of dancing in the street presuming that they take their historical materialism etc seriously.

Meanwhile, Besancenot's Trots
have found some useful idiots (Greens, Bovists etc) prepared to coalesce into the Nouveau Parti Anticapitaliste. I doubt that the revolution really is just a t-shirt away, frankly.
