Le trompe-l’œil de la droitisation

Abstract : The presidential election of 2007 validated a two-dimensional conception of the right-left axis. The cleavage in cultural liberalism, particularly on the issues of security and immigration, was more important than ever. It became a determining factor in the vote, almost equal in importance to attitude toward economic problems, the domain in which we observed complex changes. The final result of the election seems better explained by the success of the Nicolas Sarkozy’s strategy of restructuring the right than by the assumption, contradicted by the statistics, of a long-term movement of opinion in a rightward direction.
