According to a YouGov poll released last Friday, Macron's approval rating dropped by five points to 27% against 62% disapproval.
Notably, at this time last year, Macron's approval rating was at 50%. The sharp drop in support comes after one of Macron's bodyguards was filmed savagely beating a protester.
Macron's former bodyguard, Alexandre Benalla, hit and stomped a young man whilst wearing a police visor on May 1st. Benalla, who was not a policeman, had been given permission to "observe police operations" on his day off.
