French President Emmanuel Macron's popularity has fallen to its lowest point so far in his presidency, a poll showed Friday, a day after nationwide protests against his reform drive brought tens of thousands of workers on the streets. Despite falling unemployment and a high profile internationally, the number of people with a favorable opinion of the 40-year-old former investment banker dropped 3 percentage points in March to 40 percent, the BVA poll showed.Opinions varied over whether Thursday's strike had sent a message to Macron, with some commentators viewing turnout as low, while others hailing its strength.Rail workers have announced stoppages on two days out of every five between April and June in what threatens to be the biggest test of Macron's resolve since the start of his presidential term.
