Three news weeklies were published early this week giving their take on the first round. All were of the opinion that the second round is Sarkozy’s to loose and Segolene’s to win, but their presentation was subtly, and perhaps tellingly, different.
Le Point: ‘Sarkozy, Can He Loose?’
L’Express: ‘Can he be beaten?’ imposed over a picture of a pensive Sarkozy.
Le Nouvel Observateur: ‘Can she beat Sarkozy?’ next to a picture of a smiling Segolene.
Liberation was more outspoken in its political preference. ‘Ten Good Reasons Not to Vote Sarkozy’ screamed the front page today.
