Sarkozy 4X More “Right” Than Royal Is “Left”

Is there any more scientific than using Google search results to show overall trends in reporting?

About 61,700 hits for "leftwing" Segolene Royal.

And about 275,000 hits for "rightwing" Nicolas Sarkozy.

Undoubtedly these results are skewed by Mr. Sarkozy having been a national figure for a longer time than his (cute as a bug) competitor.

But still.
