A few days before the start of the first round of the environmentalists primary, which will take place from September 16 to 19, 2021 and which will nominate the candidate supported by Europe-Ecology-The Greens for the 2022 presidential election, Yannick Jadot is acclaimed by nearly seven EELV sympathizers out of ten, far ahead of their opponents, according to an Ipsos-Sopra Steria poll published on Saturday, September 4 for franceinfo and Le Parisien / Today in France. The second round of the ecological primary will take place from September 25 to 28, 2021.
To the question “who would make the best environmental candidate for the presidential election of 2022?”, 69% of EELV supporters answer by the name of the MEP. Yannick Jadot thus appears far ahead of the former party spokesperson Sandrine Rousseau (11%), the president of Génération écologie and former Minister of Ecology Delphine Batho (8%), the mayor of Grenoble Éric Piolle (7%) and the co-president of Cap écologie and unsuccessful candidate for regional in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Jean-Marc Governatori (4%). 1% of those questioned did not wish to answer.
Yannick Jadot also enjoys a good popularity rating with all French people. It actually collects 47% of favorable opinion, ahead of Sandrine Rousseau (18%), Delphine Batho (16%), Éric Piolle (11%) and Jean-Marc Governatori (8%).
It is also the left-wing candidate who would collect the most votes in the first round of the 2022 presidential election, according to our poll. With 10% of voting intentions, Yannick Jadot is placed just ahead of the socialist Anne Hidalgo (9%) and the candidate of La France Insoumise Jean-Luc Mélenchon (8 to 8.5%). The trend observed in the 2019 European elections, then in the 2020 municipal elections and finally the last regional ones does indeed seem to be confirmed.
