Emmanuel Macron’s confidence rating is stabilizing but remains at a low level. In the Elabe barometer for “Les Echos”, it rises to 29% after his progress of four points at the beginning of the month. It remains below the average recorded since the start of his second five-year term (32%). The percentage of people questioned who said they “did not trust him” increased by one point to reach 65%, or nearly two out of three French people. It should be noted, however, that those declaring “not to trust him at all” fell by two points to 39%, after a decline of six points at the start of the month.
“We were talking about relaxation. This movement continues with the stabilization of Emmanuel Macron’s confidence rating, and the continued decline of those who say they do not trust him at all, ”analyzes Bernard Sananès, the president of Elabe. The investigation took place during Emmanuel Macron’s trip to Marseille, and before the death of a young man killed by a policeman in Nanterre came occupy all the political ground and media.
” Breath of fresh air “
As it has done since the end of the pension reform and again recently in Marseille, where he made a long three-day trip, Emmanuel Macron multiplies on the ground and announcements to try to get the message across that his five-year term is not at a standstill. “He has not yet erased the pensions but we can speak of a breath of fresh air, it allows him to move on even if the French are still waiting for the materialization of the announcements”, continues Bernard Sananès.
If his confidence rating is progressing among retirees, a traditionally favorable ground for him, it remains very low (24%) among the middle cles. The head of state can not get rid of his image of “president of the rich”, notes the pollster.
Elisabeth Borne follows the same trend and sees her confidence rating go up by a small point in July, after having increased by two points at the start of the month. It nevertheless remains at a very low level of 25%. While his fate at Matignon remains uncertain, the figure of the Prime Minister remains divisive. The French lend her rigor, capacity for work and knowledge of the files, but she also suffers from the little impact of her communication in the face of a President of the Republic who has returned with force to the front line.
