The popularity of the French president Emmanuel Macron takes off. A majority of the French people is not to speak about the functioning of the may elected president.

This is evident from a survey of the French Institute for Public Opinion (If) was performed for the French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche.

The poll shows 57 percent of French people are unsatisfied with Macron, fourteen percent more than during a similar survey in July. At the end of June was 64 percent are still satisfied with the president.

The French people is also less to speak about premier Édouard Phillipe. 47 percent according to If satisfied on its performance. In July it was 56 percent.

State of emergency

One of the difficulties for the French is that the state of emergency, which in France has been in force since the terrorist attacks in Paris. The president has vowed that it will end. But the special powers of the security services – such as conducting searches without a court order – to continue to exist. “Intellectual scam”, calling the president of a prominent trade union for judges.

Also, Macrons predecessors, François Hollande and Nicolas Sarkozy had just after their uitverkiezingen to do with a declining popularity. Macron scores in his first hundred days, however, worse than his unpopular predecessors.
