Les élections présidentielle et législatives d'avril-mai-juin 2012
Normal Votes
The Presidential and Legislative Elections of April, May and June 2012

The presidential and legislative elections that took place during April, May and June 2012 led to the expression of a 'normal vote'.
Normal, if we use the meaning that this word was given in the 1960s by the American political scientist Philip Converse: when no circumstantial political force abruptly turns voters against a victory that has been expected for several years (in this case, the Left’s victory).

Normal, in the sense that one of the presidential candidates, François Hollande, compared this political situation with the ‘abnormal’ or ‘non-standard’ behaviour of his successive challengers, Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Nicolas Sarkozy. Normal, finally, because 2012’s sanction vote dealt a major blow to both the outgoing president and his legislators, much like in other European countries also experiencing the crisis.

Will such political ‘normality’ be tenable over the course of a presidential term? Would a ‘normal presidency’ grow inopportune when its authority and majority rule ultimately face major difficulties and an unusual set of circumstances?
