PARIS - President Francois Hollande saw a spectacular revival in his dismal popularity ratings on Monday as two major surveys showed French voters applauding his handling of the country's most deadly Islamist attacks.

The boost for Hollande and his government, however temporary, prevented the anti-immigrant National Front party of Marine Le Pen from capitalizing on this month's Paris violence as some analysts had predicted, one of the surveys showed.

But while the Socialist leader's improved image could help him combat resistance to his economic deregulation drive that is going through parliament, both poll groups said the downbeat jobs outlook meant the respite might not last.

Three gunmen killed 17 people in Paris two weeks ago, including staff at the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, before they themselves were shot dead by security forces.

An emotional Hollande led world leaders and over a million Parisians through the capital in a Jan. 11 march that some commentators likened to the outpouring of relief after France's 1944 liberation from Nazi rule.
