Francois Hollande rapidly losing post-election glow

In France, polls suggest that fewer than half of voters are happy with President Francois Hollande after just four months in office, with a drop of 11 points in the past month alone.
French voters appear to have lost faith with Mr Hollande very quickly, with pollsters saying policies to increase taxes and a lack of economic growth are to blame.
