PARIS (AP) - The governing Socialists are headed for a decisive loss to their conservative rivals in March legislative elections, according to a poll released yesterday. The survey of 1,000 French adults, conducted 7-9 January for Le Figaro newspaper by the Sofres polling agency, indicated the Socialists and allied parties would attract only 21 per cent of the vote in the first round of the elections, versus 41 per cent for the main opposition parties.
