Polls Show Sarkozy Likely Headed for Defeat
Via the BBC: Sarkozy: France election too close to call. Note that the headline says that Sarkozy thinks it is too close to call. Indeed, he sounds like a politicians trying to convince himself that he is better off than he really is:
French President Nicolas Sarkozy believes Sunday’s presidential election run-off against Francois Hollande will be decided by the tightest margin.
The outgoing president said he thought that the "result is open: never will an election have been so undecided." He also pointed to the enormous crowd that attended his 1 May rally at the Trocadero near the Eiffel Tower.
However, the two most recent polls puts Hollande at 53.5% and Sarkozy at 46.5% (a range that comports with two other recent polls).
