Yes, but I would have expected something like 60:40 against. 85:12 just seems... extreme.

Who still answers polls except for bored pensioners?

Von überall könnte das Volk, Urbrut alles Undemokratischen, Zelle des Terrors, über die gewählten Hüter von Wachstum und Wohlstand® kommen. - flatter

A vote for PES is a vote for EPP! A vote for EPP is a vote for PES! Support the coalition, vote EPP-PES!

... en réduisant fortement ses dépenses
... en augmentant fortement les impôts

Instead of asking about taxes and services, or revenues and expenses, they ask about taxes and expenses.

I bet they didn't think of asking about revenues and services.

Yeah, it is unthinkable, especially if they value their current job.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
