Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've always thought/ heard that his ceiling is about 9% because too many well-educated, pro-European, centrist voters won't support a Christian Democrat.

I'd probably be in that category - in Spain specially a "christian" politician would be suspect of being Opus Dei.

And, in France, I imagine strongly secular voters will shun a Christian Democrat. But if it' Bayrou-Sarkozy in the second round we'd have "better a Christian than racaille".
