Hollande's popularity soars after French militant attacks

Once France's most unpopular post-war president, Francois Hollande has experienced a dramatic surge in approval ratings over his widely-praised response to the militant attacks in Paris.

An opinion poll showed Hollande's ratings jump by a massive 21 percentage points to 40 per cent after the spate of attacks two weeks ago that left 17 people dead.

Prior to the attacks, record French unemployment, sluggish growth and a string of personal and political scandals had sent Hollande's ratings plunging to historic lows.

But his response to the country's worst attacks in decades has seen his image transform from that of bumbling, dithering president to solid, reassuring statesman.
