France's Sarkozy may not make 2012 runoff - poll

PARIS - French President Nicolas Sarkozy would not make it to the run-off of the 2012 presidential election if he faced potential Socialist candidate Dominique Strauss-Kahn in the first round, an opinion poll said on Sunday.
International Monetary Fund boss Strauss-Kahn, who has yet to say whether he will run, would draw 23 percent of votes in the first round against 17 percent for far-right leader Marine Le Pen and 16 percent for Sarkozy, according to pollster LH2.
