Next year’s election for First-President looks to be a popularity contest in a poll released yesterday by the BonHomme Sondage group, the Louisiannan division of the Gallup Group.

President Jean-François Young is currently viewed as the most loved First-President of Louisianne, and according to poll results enjoys an approval rating of 95% +/- 2%.

When presented a list of potential candidates for the First-Presidency, including Mr. Young, the Council and other political figures around the nation, Mr. Young garnered 55% of the vote, with Prefect Marie-Claire Gildersleeve second with 25%, and 15% for the other prefects. The remaining 5% was divided between the other minor candidates.

While President Young has not yet begun campaigning for a second term of office, it is expected that he will start in the near future, quite possibly with a proposed visit next week to Petit Japon in Lyons-sur-Mizouri with Her Majesty the Emperor of Japan. However, with poll results like that, a campaign analyst quipped, Mr. Young may only need to get up and give an acceptance speech.
