June 16, 2017 -- Support for the European Union among its citizens has jumped sharply since the Brexit vote a year ago, even as Europeans express doubts about the EU’s handling of migration, trade and the economy. Support surged by 18 percentage points in both Germany and France, which just elected europhile centrist Emmanuel Macron as president, the Washington-based Pew Research Center found.

Even the British hold a much more favourable opinion of the European Union. Now 54 percent of them view the EU positively, 10 points up on a year ago, while 40 percent were unfavourable. In June last year, they voted by 52 percent to 48 percent for Brexit. Negotiations on withdrawal terms start on Monday.
