The Meteoric Rise of France's New President 

Emmanuel Macron’s latest slump in opinion polls means the French leader is now more unpopular than his hapless predecessor Francois Hollande was at the same stage of his term.

Macron’s approval rating dropped 10 points to 31 percent in an Ifop survey for Paris Match magazine and Sud Radio released Tuesday. At the same point, Hollande was at 32 percent. He went on to be the most unpopular president in the country’s history.
