Vlad: ”Interesting as he was a socialist when they elected him. What did they expect, Reagan?”
He’s just another tax & spend Marxist. How could his top-down big government socialism deliver anything else but misery? Yet time and again these Europeans vote stupid.
Hollande most unpopular French president in decades – poll
Francois Hollande has taken the spot of the most unpopular French president on record, according to an opinion poll. The main complaints about the leader include tax hikes, unemployment and immigration policy.
Hollande’s approval rating dropped to 26 percent of those surveyed in October, a BVA poll revealed, which is the lowest level in the 32 years the survey has been conducted.
“During the month of October 2013, Francois Hollande’s rating dropped 6 points to 26 percent approval rating (versus 73 percent against) crossing the historical threshold of 30 percent approval and setting a historical record for unpopularity in France,” the BVA survey said.
The Socialist leader’s popularity began to sink soon after elections in May 2012. “Never in 32 years of the survey, has a president fallen below 30 percent,” Deputy Director General of the Institute Gael Sliman told Le Monde.
The weak economy has made it tough for Hollande, with a high unemployment rate and tax hikes weighing in.
