Nothing rouses the French to apathy quite like a Delors...

In this case Martine Aubry, daughter of the least popular Frenchman (in these parts at least) since Napoleon.

As noted previously, the French Socialists are deep in ferrets in the sack mode, and Le Figaro has been kind enough to poll the Plain People of France as to who they would vote for in a hypothetical Presidential Election with the same candidates as last time, plus options for Aubry and Delanoë as Socialist candidates.

La Royal is the PS's best option, in that she would reap 24% of the vote and then go head to head with Sarko in round two. A Sego candidacy sees the six candidates of the extreme left attract 18% of the vote, an Aubry gives them 23% and Delanoë 22%. Aubry would be knocked out by the Liberal Bayrou, while Bayrou would tie with Delanoë. The FN is a busted flush, but given how traumatised the PS was by failing to make it to round two in 2002, a second disaster might see it disintegrate. Yes please.

Anyway, Aubry pushes up the abstention / spoilt vote etc level to 26%, whereas the figure is stubbornly 25% for the other two. In another perhaps unexpected finding, Delanoe - an out gay man - seems to appeal to the Huntin' and Shootin' Party's voters, as he reduces its vote to zero, while Sego or Aubry candidatures see CPNT getting 1% of the vote. Maybe they are more misogynistic than homophobic....

In other findings, apparently 15% of the French have not been talking to friends etc about the election of Obama, and 33% have paid the credit crunch no mind. Also unexpected is that Left voters are more likely to have been talking about a round the world yacht race than the rest of their compatriots.
