Mitterrand's black times

December 1984
Newsweek;12/10/1984, Vol. 104 Issue 23, p57
Reports that French President Francois Mitterrand's approval rating in the polls has fallen to an all-time low. Unless there is a strong upturn in the French economy, Mitterrand himself could lose his own bid for reelection in 1988. At the moment, he plays no major policy changes. But the cross-fire is sure to get heavy in the months to come.
