Harris Interactive conducted the survey for Le Parisien, questioning 1,000 adults online from July 1 at 8 p.m. local time through July 2. That was after the former International Monetary Fund chief, accused of the sexual assault and attempted rape of a hotel maid in New York on May 14, was released on his recognizance. The case against him wasn’t dismissed and his next court hearing is scheduled for July 18. Strauss-Kahn has pleaded not guilty.
