Slowly Sinking In

The new member states, have largely pro-EU populations. They have seen membership as the final step of the escape from Soviet Domination and were sold the EU dream on more or less that basis. The reality is of course different. A number of polls in various countries have shown support for the EU softening since membership. The latest is from The Czech Republic.

Support for EU membership among Czechs is decreasing, having dropped five points since last spring to the current level of 44 percent, reveals an opinion survey conducted by the Eurobarometer polling agency and released today.
Remember that Eurobarometer always has more positive results (for the EU) than other polls. It is heartening to see that when reality bites, the normal reaction is to lose the rose tinted glasses.
