The invitation of Donald Trump to the July 14 well perceived by the French
Donald Trump THE FIGARO – According to an Odoxa poll for Le Figaro and France Info, the French approve the political initiative of Emmanuel Macron and consider that France remains a great military power.
Donald Trump may not be appreciated by the French, but when the President of the Republic invites his American counterpart to follow the July 14 parade on the Champs-Élysées, they approve the move.
According to an Odoxa poll for Le Figaro and France
Info, 61% of those interviewed agree with the head of state to have invited the US president. Against only 38% who give it wrong. The invitation to Paris is welcomed by 52% of leftist sympathizers, 73% of those on the right and 63% of those of the FN.
If this perception seems paradoxical, the study recalls an analysis by Dentsu-Consulting which emphasizes that the French judged this invitation more as a rapprochement with a great allied power of France than as a consideration with regard to Donald Trump himself.
One year after the bombing in Nice, Odoxa was also interested in the French government’s judgment. Sixty-four percent of respondents believe that they are “no more or less” effective in the fight against terrorism today.
Nevertheless, opinions seem more positive than negative,
since among those who think that things have changed since Nice, those who think we are more effective in fighting terrorism are three times more numerous than those who think we would be less effective ( 27% against 9%). FN sympathizers are the only ones who feel that we would be less effective (18% against)
The French for a compulsory national service
Concerning the macronist project,
not yet activated, of the establishment of a national service joint and obligatory one month, framed by the armed forces and the national gendarmerie, 59% of the French always declare itself favorable to its creation.
This positive perception is all the more remarkable given that respondents were informed about the probable cost of such a project, estimated by the Senate at no less than six billion euros.
This measure made a consensus of the left-wing sympathizers to those of the FN through the right-wing voters.
The study reveals that more than 7 out of 10 French people (71%) believe that France remains a “great military power”.
