Eurobarometer: Support For EU At Record High, 60% Of Hungarians Back Membership
There is clear and growing support for the European Union in member states, with 68% of respondents considering their country’s membership to be worthwhile, Eurobarometer said, adding that this is the highest favourable rating in the past 35 years.

In Hungary, fully 60% of respondents were positive about the EU.

Altogether 79% of Hungarians thought the country’s membership brought with it advantages as against 72% last year.

Based on a representative survey carried out in 28 member states, 68% of Europeans believe their country has benefited from EU membership, a four percentage point increase since April and the highest reading since 1983.

Meanwhile, 62% of respondents not only regarded membership as useful but they also thought it to be good for the country.
