Royal would defeat Sarkozy, head of the ruling Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) by 51 percent to 49 in a runoff, the poll for the French daily Le Figaro showed on Monday.
If Prime Minister Dominqiue de Villepin was standing instead of Sarkozy, he would be beaten by Royal in the election's decisive second round by 60 percent to 40, while Defense Minister Michele Alliot-Marie would get only 37 percent.
