Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There's a lot to chew on in that poll, thanks!

First of all, let's reformat your table:

35-49 56454455

Other interesting information: among the left, the Green vote splits 66:34 in favour of Royal, and the UDF vote splits 40:60 in favour of Sarkozy. All the others split at least 86:14 in the "expected" direction.

And, despite the UDF sympathisers splitting 40:60 in favour of Sarkozy, first-round Bayrou voters split 53:47 for Royal.

Another interesting statistic is the breakup by profession:

  • Artisan, merchant, business chief: 41:59 for Sarkozy
  • Cadres, liberal professions: 58:42 for Royal
  • Middle professionals: 47:53 for Sarkozy
  • Employess: 58:42 to Royal
  • Worker: 55:45 to Royal
  • Retired: 37:63 to Sarkozy
Which confirms the age statistic.

Bush is a symptom, not the disease.
