Exit polls show Sarkozy has lost in France
Kansas City Star ^ | May 6 2012 | FREDERIC CASTEL AND ROY GUTMAN

Posted on 05/06/2012 10:00:27 AM PDT by Cincinna

French Socialist Francois Hollande appeared headed to victory over President Nicolas Sarkozy, according to exit polls of voters released by Swiss and Belgian news media.

Those polls showed Hollande with 52 to 53 percent of the vote in an election that turned on solutions for Europe's economic crisis amid record unemployment in France.

French voters were still headed to cast their ballots when the exit polls were released in the early evening _ the results of exit polls cannot be published in France until voting ends at 8 p.m., 2 p.m. Eastern _ but the outcome seemed all but certain.

~ALERT~
SARKOZY HEADING FOR LOSS TO SOCIALIST 
53.3-46.7

  BELGIAN BLOGGERS BREAKS RULES AND RELEASE RESULTS

Early exit polls leaked to the Belgian media two hours before French polls are due to close showed Mr. Hollande leading current president Nicolas Sarkozy, receiving between 52.5 and 53 per cent of the vote to Mr. Sarkozy’s 47 to 47.5 per cent.

There is no way to know the accuracy of the exit-poll results, which are conducted by firms working for French political parties and are illegal to publish, broadcast or communicate within France until after polls close.
If that result holds true when polls close at 8:00 p.m. Sunday (2:00 p.m. EST), then France will be headed to the end 17 years of conservative presidencies, and end the five-year rule of Mr. Sarkozy, whose leadership was marked by a flamboyant personal style, recurring confrontations with immigrants and ethnic minorities, and free-market reforms that were only sometimes delivered.

A Hollande presidency will make France virtually the only major European country with a left-wing leader, and would mark a major shift in Europe’s balance of power.

No surprise, but I’ll never trust exit polls after 2004.

The socialist won’t roll back the lower retirement age or other money saving things though.

At least in france, the socialist actually wants france to survive. Unlike here where the leftists hate this country.

Thanks Cincinna.

Trouble for the US (and France of course, but no one had a gun to their heads) with the EU and UN, and the jihadist world, as a consequence of this French election.

This is not similar to American exit polls.
It is the official count that will be announced officially in France at 8pm French time (2pm EST)
These are the official numbers leaked to media in Belgium and Luxembourg.
Sadly, for Sarkozy and for France, they are accurate, and correspond almost exactly to the last poll.

And what, pray tell, are the "solutions" that Hollande offers?

Follow the "Obama Plan" and print more money to pay the people not to work?

Maybe it's anti-Hungarian prejudice. Sarkozy is Hungarian on his father's side. Marie Antoinette was the daughter of the Queen of Hungary and they guillotined her.

On his mother's side he's part Greek Jewish and part French Catholic by descent, according to his Wikipedia biography.

Is Scytl in Spain counting the votes, or does France still have control of the outcome within their country.

Since our Gov. has signed a contract with scytl...preceints here will count but then sent to Scytl in Spain. I can see
lost votes between here and there easily, like happened in Iowa, so just wondering.

That calls to my mind a passage from Dickens's "Pickwick Papers":

'Well; but come,' said Mr. Smangle; 'this is dry work. Let's rinse our mouths with a drop of burnt sherry; the last-comer shall stand it, Mivins shall fetch it, and I'll help to drink it. That's a fair and gentlemanlike division of labour, anyhow. Curse me!'

Where Germany is represented by the "last-comer."

Hardly a surprise for the Sark, actually. The Eurotrash news has been reporting for weeks that he was sliding in a serious sort of way. And his own actions were those of a driver who could already see a wall coming. All the Euros are watching their social democrat state models turn into silly putty. The only real question is whether they can deal with the fundamentals soon enough to avoid another dark age?

Looks like the welfare voters came out and voted in large numbers. It will be like watching a fiery vehicle crash

I agree, no results should be announced until all polls have closed.

The official results were announced on French TV at 8pm. There are parts of France that continue to vote until 9pm

Nicolas Sarkozy just finished his speech. A speech full of live for France, and the values he fought for.
Sarko fought an amazing battle, considering the war the left has waged against him with lies and media assassination. The fact that he got 51.9% when a few months ago Hollande led by 10-12% is a testament to his personal commitment, and energy.

France has lost a remarkable leader. He was taking France on the correct road. Sadly, socialism is the wrong way, the way that always fails.

The history of Western Civilization is no longer being taught in most of our schools. I’m starting to wonder how much longer civilization itself will last.

Christianity, combined with classical values and philosophy—from Jerusalem, Athens, and Rome—was the underlying force behind this culture. About the only thing I can see that might save it is a Christian revival. But in that regard, Europe is in worse shape than we are.

Still, it has happened before. Let’s hope.

As a very conservative Brit, I can only express my delight that the odious Sarkozy has lost.....

Just like Merkel and pretty much every other Euro leader, he was happy to sell his people and everyone else to the disgusting Euro project.

Britain is going to be the resistance to the socialist disease once we get rid of Cameron.
