Being able to take off the mask outside without waiting for the end of the month, as initially announced, is approved by 77% of respondents and this favorable opinion is the majority regardless of age, sex, social category or political sensitivity.

The same proportion of respondents approves the lifting of the curfew from Sunday evening.

On the other hand, the French readily admit the maintenance of the obligation to wear a mask outdoors and gauges in places open to the public: respectively 85% and 80% of those polled consider that it is a good decision.

Wearing a mask indoors is even approved by more than 90% of those aged 65 and over!

Even decisions that one might have feared unpopular are going well. Thus, 72% of those questioned believe that the government was right to open up vaccination to those aged 12 and over. Confidence is however greater when one climbs in the social category (78% of positive opinion among CSP +, against 63% among CSP-) and when one is a man (77% versus 68% among women). Here again, the plebiscite is cross-partisan: LREM supporters (90%) are the most enthusiastic, closely followed by the PS (84%), EELV (75%), LR (72%) and FI (70%), when 64% of RN sympathizers still approve of the opening of vaccination to adolescents. As for parents of teenagers, more than half (57%) say "

definitely

" or "

probably

»Vaccinate their children.

"

Discussions could be lively within couples,

" however specifies the pollster, since 62% of men intend to have their child vaccinated, against only 53% of women.

The French also seem much more serene than six months ago compared to the epidemic: they are no longer "

only

" 36% to worry about their health (it is still a lot, but it is 17 points). less than in January), 52% of that of their loved one (-21 points).

Six out of ten respondents remain worried about the health situation of the country, but it is still 23 points less than in January, and much less than in the spring of 2020 at the end of the first confinement.

Whether it is for their health, that of their loved ones or the health situation of the country, the French have never been so confident since April 2020, in full confinement.

Confidence on the rise for Macron

Consequence of this good humor of the French: more than half (54%) favorably considers the health record of Emmanuel Macron. A reversal of opinion since last month, estimates the pollster: in early May, only 36% of those polled approved the head of state's health policy, and 46% in early June. The satisfaction displayed in this month of June crosses political divisions: if the sympathizers of the presidential majority unsurprisingly draw up the hires of Emmanuel Macron (at 93%), a majority of those of the PS and LR (58%), and even almost half of the supporters of rebellious France (49%) and EELV (47%) are rather satisfied. "

In the end, it is only the supporters of the National Rally who remain particularly contrite, 69% of them deeming this record negative"

,notes the pollster.

* Survey conducted on the Internet on June 16 and 17 on a sample of 1005 French people representative of the population aged 18 and over. The margin of error for the overall results is, depending on the target score, between plus or minus 1.4 and 3.1 points.
