Public support for the EU is sliding. Pew recently surveyed eight countries.

Pew EU poll

Of the eight, only in Germany and Italy do majorities support the EU. Only in Germany does a majority think the EU strengthens the economy. Amazingly, in Italy only a small minority (11%) say the EU has helped their economy, but a majority (58%) support the EU anyway. I don’t know why but perhaps it is because being ruled from Rome is so tiresome and frustrating that being ruled from Brussels is welcome relief.
