SURVEY: The supports are fewer among supporters of the Socialist Party than those of the parties to the left of the left …

With the absence of a majority in the National Assembly, the government did push through the Labour Law with the motion 49-3.  The Labour Law, introduced by Myriam El Khomri, does not win the support of the French.  More than one in two French supports the mobilization of the unions against the Labour Law, and nearly two-thirds want the government to reconsider the text, according to a BVA poll for Orange and I-TV published Sunday.

In total, 54% of respondents say they “approve” of the movement of trade unions (CGT, FO, FSU, Solidaires, UNEF, UNL and Fidl) that call for two new days of action on the 17th and 19th May with strikes and demonstrations.

97% of opponents of the law to the left of the left

Conversely, 45% say they do not approve the move, while 1% of respondents were undecided. Not surprisingly, the difference is marked between supporters of the left, 67% support the mobilization and supporters of right (33%).
But the amount is fewer among supporters of the Socialist Party (48%) than those of “parties to the left of the PS” ((Lutte ouvrière, nouveau parti anticapitaliste, parti communiste and parti de gauche), where the the results show 97 % positive ratings to more action.  The majority of supporters of the Front National also say approve of the movement launched by the trade unions (66%).

Online survey conducted on 12 and 13 May 2016 among a sample of 1,160 people recruited by phone, representative of the French population aged 18 and over, by the quota method.
