What are the rules of the game when it comes to the presidential election in France ? What associations have the French made with the election for the last forty years ? What do we know of the profiles of the different electorates from the extreme left to the extreme right ? What are the political and electoral orientations of the different demographic and social milieus in France ? Many French voters today question the staging of the presidential election through the media, the polls, and the big issues which are driven by the overriding design of a political agenda. What can be done to make voters lean toward one side or the other ?
In response to all these questions, this ELECTORAL ATLAS intends to give the average citizen some strong clues and clear benchmarks in order to understand the vote, our vote.
