Pew: Euroscepticism on the Rise Across Europe

From The Independent:

Over sixty per cent of French voters now have an unfavourable view of the European Union while almost half the electorate in Germany, Spain and the Netherlands have also become Eurosceptic, new research reveals.

An analysis by the respected American think-tank the Pew Research Centre found a marked drop in support for the EU across seven major European countries…

In 2004, 69 per cent of French voters and 58 per cent of German voters backed the EU – while not a single country reported a net negative rating.

The research also reveals that not a single European country wants more powers to be handed to the EU while a growing number of voters want powers repatriated.
