Poll shows only 26% of French people have positive opinion of Socialist president, lower even than Sarkozy's 30% 

François Hollande has become the most unpopular French president on record, just as the beleaguered Socialist government was forced to make its second tax climbdown in one week following violent street protests in Brittany.

Only 26% of French people have a positive opinion of the Socialist president, a BVA poll showed . It was the worst score for a French leader since BVA began polling 32 years ago. Hollande, who never enjoyed a state of grace and saw his popularity plummet very soon after his election in May 2012, has now plunged lower than even the former right-wing president Nicolas Sarkozy who had 30% approval at his lowest point during the economic crisis.

The poll shows Hollande's near-unanimous unpopularity among right-wing voters: 97% have a bad opinion of the Socialist leader, a level never reached by any president among supporters of other parties, even Sarkozy who deeply antagonised many left-wing voters.
