The 2012 French Election

How the Electorate Decide

Edited by Pascal Perrineau

Octobre 2016

Palgrave Macmillan, sept 2016

The first in-depth longitudinal electoral study of a French presidential election, now available in English
Assembles a team of high-profile French election specialists to analyze this data on electoral choices and make case-specific and broader conclusions
Presents the data and results from this groundbreaking study with a new introduction and conclusion for English-speaking readers

This edited volume is based on a highly original survey carried out between November 2011 and June 2012 among a panel of 6,000 voters. The panel was interviewed on 12 separate occasions about how and why they made their voting choices. The book focuses on how electoral choices are made and how these choices evolve during the short time-span of an election campaign. The analysis of the 2012 electoral result shows more than ever that voting choices are the fruit of interweaving timelines: the long term period that characterizes voters’ predispositions and their predictions of a possible scenario; the shorter period of time during which the campaign unfolds where those predispositions are either confirmed, called into question, or undone; and the moment when the final choice is made. This is the first time the electoral decision-making process during a French Presidential election has been systematically studied.
