Voters in Europe are kicking out incumbents rather than opposing a particular ideology or policy. The Spanish voted out their left leaning government
Sarkozy and the French banks were some of the primary pushers behind the austerity policies that are pushing much of Europe back into recession. However, austerity doesn’t seem to have been that large of an issue in France in the election, primarily because Sarkozy also ran against what, in a large part, had been his own policies just a short time ago.
It is a tough time to be an incumbent. Voters know that times are tough but they don’t know why. Obama and the democrats will have a hard time in November, too, for the same reasons.
