Eurobarometer: poll shows strong support for Constitution but low knowledge of Convention
As the Convention on the Future of Europe prepares to report to the European Council later this week, there is strong support across the EU for a European Constitution, according to early results from the latest Eurobarometer survey. The poll, which questioned more than 16,000 people across the EU between March 18 and April 30, found that a large majority of people want to keep at least one Commissioner per Member States and also back the idea of an EU Foreign Minister. However, the survey did reveal considerable ignorance about the Convention's work. Support for the euro within the eurozone has increased since the last survey carried out in the autumn.
