The EELV Primary Candidates Survey “For the moment, measures a gap in notoriety which is abysmal between Yannick Jadot and the other four contenders for the primary”, indicates Sunday, September 5 Jean-François Doridot, Managing Director of Ipsos Public Affairs. In this Ipsos Sopra Steria survey for franceinfo, The Parisian and Today in France, Yannick Jadot is appointed as “the best candidate” by 69% of environmental supporters.
“Yannick Jadot is now installed in public opinion, he was the winner of the last primary in 2016, he led the list of Europe Ecology Les Verts successfully in 2019”, underlines Jean-François Doridot, it is therefore “logically enough that he is in the lead today”.
But that doesn’t necessarily mean a victory in the primary, “Let us remember that in 2016, Cécile Duflot was favorite, she did not even manage to qualify in the second round, and in the previous primary, the big favorite was Nicolas Hulot and finally he was beaten by Eva Joly”, he said, so he can “there are surprises in an environmentalist primary”.
The Director General of Ipsos Public Affairs also underlines that primary voters represent “at most 0.1 to 0.2% of the population”, then the supporters of Europe Ecologie-Les Verts “it’s still 10% of the population”. He estimates that “the debates are going to be very, very important” and followed by the tens of thousands of voters.
From “two surprises” of this survey, Jean-François Doridot underlines the low score of Eric Piolle who did not “not taken advantage of this summer to progress, at least in terms of notoriety”. For his part, “Sandrine Rousseau, who was completely unknown to the general public” a few months ago, came second in this survey.
