Comment Nicolas Sarkozy a rétréci l’électorat Le Pen

Abstract : Between the first round of the 2002 and the 2007 French presidential election, Jean-Marie Le Pen lost 6 percentage points and a million voters. The French Electoral Panel (2007) shows that these voters still stand out by their rightist tropism, their ethnocentric-authoritarian attitudes. But over a quarter of the 2002 Le Pen voters turned to Nicolas Sarkozy in 2007, because he appeared to have a presidential stature and far more chances to be elected. The FN lost more support among the self employed and office and sales clerks than among blue collars which form today almost half his constituency. Its decline shows that the progression of extreme right parties is not inescapable, and that the supply side of politics is decisive.
