According to the first French opinion poll since Dominique Strauss-Kahn was arrested, a majority of French people think he was set up.

Some 57 percent of the 1,007 people surveyed think the alleged sex assault case may have been a plot to frame him by his enemies.

But 54 percent of those asked believe France’s Socialist Party could still win next year’s presidential election, even without Strauss-Kahn.

President Nicolas Sarkozy’s ratings are at rock-bottom and he is facing an uphill struggle to get re-elected next year. If Strauss-Kahn were to withdraw from the race, a majority of those polled think Sarkozy would be most likely to benefit.
