PARIS, Nov 4 (AFP) - Sixty-five percent of French citizens think US President George W. Bush's re-election is a "bad thing", according to an opinion poll published here Thursday.

Just 23 percent of respondents felt the Republican president's victory is "a good thing," with 12 percent expressing no opinion either way, the poll published in Le Parisien newspaper showed.

On future Franco-US relations, at a low over France's opposition to the US-led military action in Iraq, almost three-quarters (74 percent) of those questioned expected to see no change while 12 percent looked forward to improved ties and just seven percent expected things to get worse.

The CSA polling agency questioned 780 people aged 15 or over by telephone on Wednesday.
