This note looks at the popularity of the executive (Prime Minister and President of the Republic) and parties of power (ump and ps) in France. The aim is twofold: on the one hand to test the influence of economic, socio-economic and politic variables on the popularity of Prime Minister and the President to know who is most responsible and secondly to know the dynamics of power’s parties. Our results show that the newly introduced variables are significant and confirm the greater sensitivity of the popularity of Prime Minister vis-à-vis the economic deteriorations compared to that of the President of the Republic. However, if the ruling party also appears to be responsible, the opposition party does not take advantage of the deteriorating economic conditions. Classification JEL : C30, D72
