Significant decline in the popularity of Emmanuel Macron

The popularity rating of French President Emmanuel Macron continues to fall, as protests against the controversial pension reform multiply, according to a poll relayed on Tuesday by French media.

The President of the Republic lost two points of popularity, to 34% of favorable opinion, his worst score since March 2020, according to the Ifop-Fiducial polling institute.

In Matignon, the Prime Minister, Elisabeth Borne, in the front line on the pension reform, recorded a more significant decline: -4 points compared to last month, at 31% approval.

According to this survey, only 38% of French people consider the President of the Republic as capable of reforming the country, a drop of two points compared to last month.

The Prime Minister is perceived as rigid by the French: only 27% find her “open to dialogue”, a figure down 8 points in one month.

Since the start of the school year in September, the government’s popularity rating has continued to crumble, particularly among working people where it is only 29% for Emmanuel Macron, and 24% for Élisabeth Borne.

This survey was carried out from February 1 to 2, 2023 with a sample of 1,012 people aged 18 and over, according to the quota method, with a margin of error of between 1.4 and 3.1 points.
