The UK is not the only country with increasing doubts about the EU.
A Pew Research Center study on Euroskepticism Beyond Brexit shows a huge dip in EU favorability acriss the board.
France has an even lower overall favorable rating of the EU than the UK. The favorable score is 38% in France, 44% in the UK.
The British are not the only ones with doubts about the European Union. The EU’s image and stature have been on a roller coaster ride in recent years throughout Europe. In a number of nations the portion of the public with a favorable view of the Brussels-based institution fell markedly from 2012 to 2013 as the European economy cratered. It subsequently rebounded in 2014 and 2015. But the EU is again experiencing a sharp dip in public support in a number of its largest member states.
