French election

Of course we already have a map of the results. Thank you CatholicGuaze.
There will be a run off election on May 6th between the socialist party Segolene Royal and the more conservative US-friendly Nicolas Sarkozy. Sarkozy got the most votes in the preliminary round, so it's generally thought that it's his election to lose now. However, the French left wing does not have to compromise to beat an extreme right winger like Le Pen, which is why Chirac, who is just right of center, was elected in the first place.
