Poll Smoke
If a referendum on EU membership were held across the bloc today, a majority in favour of remaining would be impossible to reach in the UK, Czech Republic and Italy, according to the latest Eurobarometer released by the European Parliament on Thursday (25 April).

The survey asked 27,973 Europeans between 19 February and 4 March and noted an overall increase of undecided voters in 13 countries, including the UK.
Unsatisfied in France: Muted response to Macron sales pitch

That's an interesting contorsion. Desperately trying to find something negative to say about Europeans' attachment to Europe.
According to the poll, 47% of Czechs would vote to stay, 24% to leave. That's close to a two thirds majority. 49/19 in Italy, that's over two thirds.

I suppose it's an interesting thought experiment : design a referendum where unless an absolute majority of eligible voters votes to continue the status quo, the reverse applies.

Most journalists are hacks. And the pro - anti EU frame is a way to replace a lot of politics coverage with horse race bullshit, that they love more than anything.
