Macron's Approval Rating Hits Lowest Of his Presidency Following Protests
Polling figures reveal support for Macron are lowest in his entire Presidency
As the leaders of the French "Yellow Vest" movement reject President Emmanuel Macron's demands for talks amid riots protesting the fuel tax, the President's approval ratings are at an all-time low.
According to new polling figures, support for Macron has plummeted to the lowest in his entire Presidency.
The Ifop-Fiducial survey, which was conducted out for Paris Match and Sud Radio, found the globalist 'golden boy' saw a massive slump by 6 points last month. Then plummeting to its lowest ever level of 23 percent in December.
Now there are almost eight in ten voters displeased with the president, which has ultimately seen his approval ratings fall dramatically since he took office in May 2017.
The first Ifop poll found that 66 percent of voters approved of Macron's performance back in 2017.
In 2018, the strong disapproval has grown distinctly, most notably in the last 12 months, see 50 percent amongst the 1,004 people surveyed for December 2018 matched with 27 percent of voters polled in 2017.
The figures show a “growing hostility” towards Macron and his “chaotic management” of France’s gravest riots in half a century, culminating in three weeks of protests over his fuel tax increases.
Macrons answer for the fuel tax hikes? It is necessary ‘to wean the French people off fossil fuels.’
The polls show that support Gilet Jaunes (Yellow Vests) movement has increased to a majority (72 percent) of the French public.
Yesterday we reported that the French Government has announced it will delay it's "climate tax" on fossil fuels.
France's leader is accused of using Climate Change fears to usher in taxes on gas and diesel that hurt hard-working everyday people instead of the already-wealthy.
Macron, on a visit to Berlin and Germany with Chancellor Angela Merkel, insisted a “responsibility” of developing towards an EU superstate, in which member states are obliged to surrender sovereignty on “foreign affairs.
Out of touch
Much of the turmoil has come after the former-Rothschild banker Macron enacted sky-high gas taxes to tackle what he believes could doom humanity within the next decade: global warming.
Is there any wonder why people are calling for his resignation?
