PARIS - French President Nicolas Sarkozy's approval rating has risen by five points since June to 35 percent, the strongest advance in months for the center-right leader ahead of a 2012 election, a survey showed on Monday.

The survey, carried out by pollster Ipsos and published by Le Point magazine, showed Sarkozy's two main Socialist rivals, Francois Hollande and Martine Aubry, had slipped but were still well ahead of him with 54 percent and 48 percent respectively.

"Although the president remains largely unpopular, the trend has once again turned positive," said Ipsos.

The Ipsos figures show Sarkozy is still less popular than he was in March 2010 when his ruling center-right UMP party suffered a resounding defeat in regional elections.
