I have a question for those in France, especially outside Paris. Did anyone see any evidence on Saturday of the UMP's "72 heures pour decider"? Its clear they at least think they have in mind the once-vaunted Republican turnout operation of 04, but this kind of gotv has never been done before in French elections (because no one's ever had the time or resources to compile adequate voter files).

If the UMP has been doing this under the radar, it would mean Sarkozy might perform a few points better than expected.

If its just upper-class kids in blue t-shirts handing out brochures at the market, its not more than a slogan.
