After the first round of the legislative elections last week, President Sarkozy’s center-right Union for the Presidential Majority (UMP) had been expected to win upwards of 400 seats in parliament, a stunning 80% majority.

  • The socialists lowered expectations, and then met them. Kind of like how Hillary sycophants keep claiming Barack Obama will raise $40 million this quarter, so when he raises more than Clinton but falls below a record-breaking $40 million, the Clinton camp can say Obamamania is petering out. Won’t really affect the outcome in the long run.
