PARIS - French President Nicolas Sarkozy's lead over Socialist Francois Hollande is becalmed or shrinking ahead of the first round of a presidential election on April 22 and he still trails in the runoff, three polls showed on Tuesday.

The conservative Sarkozy, fighting an uphill battle for a second term, saw his lead for the first ballot slip to half a percentage point from 2 points a week ago in a poll by Ipsos Logica, with 29 percent support to Hollande's 28.5 percent.

The same poll showed Hollande retaining a 10-point lead in voting intentions for the May 6 runoff with 55 percent to Sarkozy's 45 percent, unchanged from a week earlier.

All three surveys showed far right candidate Marine le Pen in third place, ahead of hard left campaigner Jean-Luc Melenchon in fourth.
