Poll: strong relapse for Emmanuel Macron


BAROMETER FIGARO MAGAZINE - The confidence rating of the President of the Republic loses 6 points in one month. That of the Prime Minister, 5.

We must go back to July 2018 to find the trace of such a sudden drop in the confidence rating of the President of the Republic.

In the midst of the Benalla affair, Emmanuel Macron saw his rating drop from 38 to 32%.

Six points lost as in this comeback where the Covid epidemic does not weaken and forces the executive to take unpopular measures.

The French wait-and-see attitude towards the head of government has turned into mistrust.

Jean Castex also sees his confidence rating drop by five points and settle at a very low level for a prime minister three months after taking office.

The most worrying for the executive is the attitude of right-wing supporters.

The composition of the government and the president's strategic line seemed destined to attract them.

The opposite effect occurs.

They are now only 41% (-1) to trust Macron and 39% (-11) to Castex.

A mistrust that has not escaped LR leaders.

At the strategic council last Tuesday, they agreed to insist in the media on the difference between the right and Macron.

For Brice Hortefeux,

"Emmanuel Macron is to the right what gluten-free bread is to the bakery!"

Édouard Philippe: -1

A successful comeback for the former prime minister who retains his second place and becomes alone in the lead among LR supporters, ahead of Nicolas Sarkozy!

It remains to be seen how to manage this popularity over time without upsetting the President of the Republic.

The Minister of Health is not approaching the start of the school year in the best conditions.

It fell by 5 points after its announcements of closing bars and restaurants in Marseille.

Praised by the media last February, he even lost support among LREM supporters (-8, 45%).
