Bloody foreigners not keen on bloody foreigners

The first choice of 18% of French voters for President is Marine Le Pen, since Sarko just isn't right wing enough for them. The BBC's take on this is:

France election: Sarkozy seeks key far-right votes
Because, of course, Hollande would quite happy to concede those 18% of voters to Sarko, on top of Sarko's 27% of first choice voters... and it's not like Hollande is going to be shy of seeking the 11% votes of Melenchon who is, by any criteria, pretty far left. Perhaps the headline
France election: Hollande seeks key far-left votes
doesn't fit the narrative...
