This study examined the French electorate's reaction to the political climate of France in 1968. The interviews were obtained by Institut Francais d'Opinion Publique during the week following the second round of voting in the 1968 election. The questionnaire dealt extensively with the worker strikes and student rebellions of May and June 1968. The study also investigated the respondent's satisfaction with French President Charles de Gaulle's policies as well as opinions concerning the value of the Common Market and the establishment of a united Europe and a European army. Questions about political party preference and the respondent's vote in 1967 and in 1968 were also asked. Demographic data include sex, age, religious denomination, size of community, level of education, occupation, and monthly income.
