Another really splendid post over at Arun with a View about how French expatriates and dual nationals voted in the French presidential election. This information comes from exit polls at the French consulates abroad. Fascinating. I won't spoil the read for you but here are just a few results that I thought were particularly interesting:
The race was close in Mexico: 47% for Hollande and 52% for Sarkozy. The UK was another close one with Hollande squeaking by with a little over 50% of the vote. Germany, however, was a solid win for Hollande with 56%.
In the U.S. Sarkozy beat Hollande 61% to 39% but looking at the major cities you see a lot of variation. New York and Chicago were solidly Sarko. New Orleans was a Hollande win.
And in my hometown of Seattle? 255 votes for Hollande and 343 votes for Sarkozy.
How did that happen? :-)
