So as Obama, Hollande was not the winners of the white vote. Actually Sarkozy was the large winner of the White. Most of rightist political commenters recommands the Sailer strategy to the right, go righter and whiter. 

Hope to hear your thoughs about it even if you are not a big french politics followers.

Thanks. I can`t read French, so, if you do, check these links out for yourself. There doesn`t seem to be much demographic analysis of the French election available in English.
