    Three quarters of French citizens are unhappy with President Francois Hollande and Prime Minister Manuel Valls, French Institute of Public Opinion (IFOP) reports.

    Three quarters of French citizens were discontent with President Francois Hollande and 55 percent with Prime Minister Manuel Valls, according to a poll carried out by French Institute of Public Opinion (IFOP), Journal du Dimanche reported.

    The poll shows that more women are dissatisfied with their president (77 percent) than men (73 percent).

    An astonishing 93 percent of supporters of the Front National (FN) and the Union for Popular Movement (UMP) were dissatisfied with Hollande. A similar trend is seen among supporters of most other political parties with the sole exception of those who support Hollande’s Socialist Party (30 percent).

    Even then, the numbers reveal that almost one third of those who support the Socialist Party are discontent with Hollande himself.

    Hollande’s popularity started to drop last fall due to the high level of unemployment, public debt and the extreme budget deficit. Last November, almost 3.5 million people were unemployed in France, the highest recorded level in the country’s recent history.
