Sarkozy surprise lead in French elections

Quote from the Wall Street Journal "The Socialist Party and its allies took 21.85% of the vote (current leaders), behind former President Nicolas Sarkozy’s resurgent conservative UMP party and its centrist allies with 29.4%.
The anti-immigration, anti-European National Front took 25.19%; an almost 10 point improvement on a comparable poll in 2011"

Who ever thought Sarkozy had this in him?

Sarkozy never was a man to give up. He since losing to Mr Hollande has carefully worked on returning to the presidency. Interesting is the success of the Front National. Marine LePen for years now carefully moved her Party out of the right corner towards the Centre and now takes voters away from the Socialists. This to me is a real surprise
