Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
These #s are largely unchanged for those sub-groups since last winter. Royal's support has been very weak all along among older, more conservative women. >55 has been a right-wing constituency for the entire 5th Republic, which makes no sense given what the right wants to do to retirement age and pensions.

But the race wont' be won by winning over these groups; it'll be won by winning over better-educated, better-off, younger urban men and women and by increasing turnout among traditional left-voting but lazy (in 02) constituencies among students, teachers, civil servants.
