In the Netherlands, where there was speculation over a possible ‘Nexit’ prior to the March 15th general election, support for the European Union has grown from 51% to 64%.
On average 67% of European people surveyed see the Union in a positive light, with support highest in Poland (74%). However, the European Union remains very unpopular in Greece (33%). Although the crisis there no longer commands headlines, the economic situation in Greece continues to deteriorate.
Despite widespread support for the European Union, three-quarters of respondents believed that Brussels should have less say over migration, while two-thirds thought that their own government should have the final say over immigration even from other European countries.
The poll, which was conducted by the American pollster Pew Global, interviewed 9935 people across 10 European countries.
