Public support for the European Union has collapsed to a nine-year low in all of its 27 countries, a poll has revealed. The European Commission says fewer than half of voters across Europe are in favour of the union. The “Eurobarometer” survey – conducted in May – found only 49 per cent of voters backed the EU, four per cent fewer than last year.
Trust was lowest in Britain where only 20 per cent of voters have faith in EU institutions.
Following the debt crisis, the survey found widespread fears that EU economies will worsen. Pollster TNS asked 1,000 adults in each EU country and found support near that of 2001 when the internet bubble burst.
