French Fall Out of Love With Macron: What’s Behind the Dip in President’s Rating

from Sputnik News:
A new poll has shown a double digit drop in French President Emmanual Macron’s approval rating in the space of a month. Commenting on the phenomenon, French politics specialist Maxim Sokolov said that the odd waning of the president’s approval rating can be explained by the way in which his rating was artificially built up in the first place.

A new Ifop poll, commissioned by the Journal du Dimanche newspaper, has found that Macron’s rating has slipped 10 percentage points to 54 percent – the sharpest decline over the first three months of a French presidency since Jacques Chirac, whose rating dropped 15 points between May and July of 1995.

Macron-appointed Prime Minister Edouard Philippe’s approval rating also dipped by 8 percent, down to 56 percent.
