New Poll Puts Sarkozy Well Ahead in French Race

A poll taken after the televised debates between French presidential candidates Nicolas Sarkozy and Segolene Royal has the conservative Sarkozy leading 54-46 over the Socialist, Royal.

I'm going to venture a guess and say that even the French don't want a Socialist at the helm after the many years of left-wing presidents who've destroyed the country from within through plentiful disincentives to hard work, including: a 35 hour work week, massive unemployment benefits, and measures making it hard to fire poor employees and difficult to hire good employees. The subsequent escape of capital has left the French economy in a shambles with the unemployment rate creeping into double digits.

Sarkozy will win handily, and you can be sure that the American media will be shocked.
