Unpopular Hollande makes election pledge
Francois Hollande said he would only consider running in the presidential elections of 2017 if there is a possibility to win. The Socialist president has had some of the lowest rankings in French history. He broke a new record in June, when a TNS Sofres poll for Le Figaro Magazine put his rating at 12 percent, the lowest ever for a French president. His rating in July was 17 percent.
