EXIT POLLS: Sarkozy Trails Challenger for French Presidency by Six Points

France’s mood of “anti-Sarkozyism” appears to have won the day as the first round of a hotly contested presidential election saw the conservative President’s fortunes decline significantly. Early exit polls, taken four hours before voting was to close and released on Belgian and Swiss media, show Nicolas Sarkozy receiving only 25 to 26 per cent of the vote, down from the substantial 31.2 per cent first-round result that helped bring him to victory five years ago. – Globe and Mail
