French Elections: the 3rd man
Today I had lunch on the rue des Martyrs in the 9th (a very busy street that they turn into a pedestrian area on Sundays) and within 5 meters was given 3 promotional leaflets for the 3 main candidates. I already mentionned Nicolas Sarkozy and Ségolène Royal, here is now François Bayrou "the 3rd man" as they call him. He claims to be at the center and it works! The polls now give him a score of 19% for the primaries and say he would win over all the other candidates if he makes it to the "final".
