A recent poll carried out by France’s Le Figaro newspaper has indicated that at least 72 percent of respondents want Syrian President Bashar Assad to remain in power.


The result of the “poll” cannot be generalized since it was a “Friday online poll” by Le Figaro, which was not representative of the French public. For example, by way of contrast in a survey of 1,103 French people carried out by pollster BVA, 55 percent said they would support French action in Syria compared to 64 percent who were against in 2013. reut.rs/1SvGhU6,
