Only 38% of French people say they regularly follow the campaign for the legislative elections to be held on June 12 and 19, according to a BVA poll published on Friday and carried out for Orange and RTL.

Among them, 12% say they follow her “a lot” and 26% “quite a bit”.

On the contrary, a total of 61% of respondents say they do not “not at all” (27%) or “a little” (34%) follow the news of the future election.

“The campaign prints little, despite the important stakes represented by these elections”, notes the polling institute in its study.

In addition, nearly two thirds of respondents (64%) want Emmanuel Macron “not to have the majority and that there is cohabitation”. A figure that reaches 76% among 25-34 year olds.

More than half of the French people questioned (57%) are nevertheless convinced that the President of the Republic will obtain a majority – but “this prognosis of victory is not massive”, since 42% of respondents doubt it, nuance BVA.

In addition, 57% of respondents do not want Elisabeth Borne to remain Prime Minister after the elections.

However, only 31% of respondents are in favor of Jean-Luc Mélenchon occupying the position. “No opponent emerges naturally,” notes the pollster.

Sign of the national stake of the election, the respondents declare at 53% to be “above all” attentive to the “program” of their deputy, rather than to his “local establishment” (17%).

In addition, only 40% of French people questioned know the name of the MP for their constituency.

This survey was carried out according to the quota method from May 31 to June 2, with a sample of 1,002 French people questioned by internet and representative of the French population, aged 18 and over. The margin of error is between 1.4 and 3.1%.
