Before the Agricultural Show, 91% of French people still support the anger of the peasant world

A few days before the opening of the Agricultural Show, on February 24, the farming world is not releasing the pressure on the executive, more than a month after the start of the mobilization. From the Hôtel de Matignon, this Wednesday, Gabriel Attal once again tried to defuse the anger of farmers, drawing out a new series of measures. These gestures are all the more expected as the movement is even more massively supported by the French (91%, 2 points compared to January), as revealed in our latest Odoxa-Backbone Consulting survey for Le Figaro.

After a first burst of responses, at the end of January, the Prime Minister managed to obtain the lifting of the roadblocks which had blocked France for two weeks. However, more is needed to convince the French, who currently consider government measures “insufficient” (70%). Only supporters of Renaissance (68%) believe that the file should already be closed after the concessions granted to the agricultural world. It must be said that the French largely point the finger at Emmanuel Macron and his government, since 85% of them consider them “responsible” for the crisis. Behind mass distribution (92%) and the European Union (90%), but ahead of the main agricultural union, the FNSEA (80%), and consumers (77%).

LISTEN TO OUR PODCAST

Less than four months before the European elections, no party seems to be reaping the benefits of the agricultural crisis. Here again, more than three quarters of French people (77%) find that the presidential movement and the government defend the interests of farmers “poorly”. It is barely better for the Republicans (74%), while the peasant world was once an electoral reservoir for the right. Less than three French people in ten also judge that left-wing groups (PS: 28%, Ecologists: 27%, LFI: 27%) correctly represent the voice of farmers.

Only the National Rally (RN) seems to be doing well, since 35% of French people judge that Marine Le Pen and her team defend the agricultural sector “well”. In the columns of Le Figaro, Tuesday, Gabriel Attal also said he was “ready” for a debate on agriculture with the double-finalist in the presidential election, while the RN vote has attracted rural people for several years already. From the start of the discontent, the Marinist party stood up against the “punitive ecology” that the farmers denounced in the processions. A successful bet since 60% of French people also want “reduction” in environmental and health standards.
