Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
So, did the polls underestimate the left vote because people are embarrassed to admit they're going to vote for the losers of the Presidentials, or what?

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?

They announced 197 seats uncertain and amongst them 85 very close after first round, low turnout so a slight come back of the left voters has pretty big effects.

Then of course the end of weeks news of "minimal" minimum wage raise in july, TVA sociale that will eat on low incomes did not help.

Well, there were few polls done in individual circumscriptions, so this result is not inconsistent with pre-election polling.
