Follow us on:

Jan. 31 (Bloomberg) -- A total of 63 percent of French adults saw at least part of President Nicolas Sarkozy’s televised interview on Jan. 29, according to a poll.

Thirty-one percent watched the whole interview and 32 percent saw at least some of it, according to the Ifop poll for Journal du Dimanche newspaper.

Eighty-two percent said Sarkozy seemed “determined” in the interview in which he announced that he’ll fund a decrease in labor charges with a sales-tax increase. Only 49 percent found him “convincing” and 41 percent found him “reassuring.”

The poll involved 849 people, with follow-up questions for those who watched the interview.

Sarkozy trails his Socialist challenger Francois Hollande in polls ahead of France’s presidential elections, which will be held over two rounds in April and May.
