Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Hollande is likely to win.

The choice for PM will be between Aubry and Montebourg.

of Arnaud's soul-searching. Hollande must have made him a substantial offer. Aubry isn't playing the game he claims he doesn't want to play ("elle s'y prend super mal"), but it may all turn out differently after their summit meeting today...

but seriously, I think people are big enough to make up their own minds. He has played his cards well up until now, but he risks making a twit of himself.

Yep. They're not going to make me believe their base is evenly split between Hollande and Aubry.

It's not a perfect indication, but last night on Libé's live coverage of the debate, they ran an online straw poll of those who had voted Montebourg in the first round, as to for whom they would now vote in the second. It went 53% Aubry, 21% Hollande.
