How do Europeans feel about the EU and a potential Brexit?

A Union Jack flag flutters next to European Union flags

In two weeks, people across the United Kingdom will go to the polls to vote on whether to remain part of the European Union. A new analysis conducted by the Pew Research Centre has found that the British aren’t the only ones with doubts about the institution. It found that Euroscepticism is on the rise with 47 per cent of Europeans holding an unfavourable view of the EU.

On a country by country basis, 71 per cent of people in austerity-ravaged Greece find the EU unfavourable, along with 61 per cent in France, 49 per cent in Spain and 48 per cent in the UK. Pew also found that 42 per cent of Europeans would like some powers returned to national governments with only 19 per cent believing national governments should transfer more power to the EU. When it comes to the issue of a potential Brexit, 7 out of every 10 people in Europe say that Britain leaving the EU would be a bad thing.
