Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think you can find some answers in the debate we had following this comment How Ségolène could win? in the French election official results thread.

I don't think an aggressive strategy towards Sarko would work. In fact, I think it could backfire, moderate voters seeing it as bigotry.

Only part of Bayrou voters will spontaneously vote Royal. Convincing more of them requires proposing them a positive common project to which they can adhere. It seems Segolène Royal has adopted this line.
