Polls point to decisive Socialist win

Nicolas Sarkozy et François Hollande toujours au coude à coude dans les sondages. Two new polls show Socialist candidate François Hollande heading for a crushing victory in the French presidential election over Nicholas Sarkozy. A CSA poll (carried out 16-17 April) shows Hollande leading the president by 29% to 24% in the first round, and by a whopping 58% to 42% in the second round run-off. The BVA survey, conducted on the same days, gives Hollande a two-point first round lead (29.5% to 27.5%) and a 12-point margin (56% to 44%) in the second round. Both polls show Front National leader Marine Le Pen regaining a distant third place (14% and 17%) from the Front de Gauche candidate Jean-Luc Mélanchon.
