A new Ifop poll should make Segolene Royal a bit more worried: she is equal with Bayrou. UDF candidate Francois Bayrou and Socialist candidate Segolene Royal would each win 23% of the votes in the first round, lead only by Nicolas Sarkozy at 28%.
Even worse, if Jean-Marie Le Pen was unable to collect the necessary number of signatures to be on the ballot, Bayrou would defeat Royal 25% to 24%, and Sarkozy would soar to 34.5%. All in all, not a good way to start the weekend for the Socialists.
