 ICPSR - 6583 - French Presidential Election Survey, 1988
This survey, undertaken to facilitate the comparative study of French and United States electoral behavior, was conducted in conjunction with the French presidential election of 1988.
Accordingly, the questionnaire closely matches the standard American National Election Study, and, where appropriate, the questions were posed in language and forms that maintained continuity with earlier studies conducted in France.
The 132 variables include 7-point scales recording respondents' left-right positions on major issues (including government subsidies to religious schools, the size of the public sector, and government policy toward immigrants) as well as their perceptions of the positions of the five major parties and the four major presidential candidates on those same scales.

Le Pen finished second with 16.86% of the vote in the first round of a crowded French presidential election of 16 candidates.
French voter particpation has been decreasing since 1988, when a little more than 80% of the population voted.
Many French citizens were shocked by the results, as Le Pen is largely viewed as an anti-Semite and racist because of his support of "national preference" laws for housing and employment, in addition to advocating the expulsion of illegal immigrants and restricting the right to seek asylum.

 Diverted tautological political communication in French presidential elections: The case of Lionel Jospin in 1995
The 2002 presidential elections may however prove slightly more difficult to handle for the socialist contender, who, although clearly in a position to win the election, is now perceived as an established politician with a record to defend.
Written before the forthcoming 2002 French presidential election, the present article examines the influence exerted by the mass media and opinion surveys in France upon the public perception of presidential candidates.
The nature of this influence was very apparent in the 1995 presidential campaign, as the exploitation of opinion polls by the media had an impact on both the communication strategies of presidential candidates and the political ‘offer’ made to the French electorate.

It might be said that the French Presidential election has little relevance to the question of possible changes in the method of holding U. Presidential elections, because the U.S. has never experienced such an extensive field of candidates (16 names on the ballot) as the French election did in 2002.
In particular, any claim that monotonicity failure is a practical problem, and that the 2002 French election provides an empirical example of it, rests by necessity on data that is both unobserved and counterfactual.
Because in simple plurality elections votes cast for trailing candidates (expected to place third or lower) are almost certainly "wasted," voters who sincerely prefer such candidates have an incentive to vote "tactically" for whichever of the two leading candidates they relatively prefer.
