Could other EU countries leave the Union?



In light of the formation of the anti-EU party “Italexit” in Italy, an investigation was carried out by Redfield and Wilton strategies to investigate overall support for the European Union.

The survey asked people in the “big four” Member States a series of questions.

In responses, Italians were the most likely to say they would support leaving the union if the UK was economically sound five years from now.

This question received a moderate response from citizens in France and Spain, with 38% and 37%, in retrospect, saying they would support this.

Germans were the least likely to express support for leaving the EU, with just 30% saying it would be a good idea to leave the bloc.

In addition, a fairly large number of respondents said the UK would benefit from Brexit in the long term, even if it suffers from economic challenges in the short term.

What is Italexit?

The Italexit party is modeled on the Brexit party and claims to want to liberate Italy “from the cage of the European Union and the single currency”.

Party founder Gianluigi Paragone, who is also a television journalist, was elected Senator of the Five Star Movement in 2018.

There has been growing skepticism about the EU project in recent years. In another survey, 34% of Italians said joining the EU had a negative impact on the country.

Is there still support from the EU?

Optimistic pro-EU groups point out that, despite some disillusionment with the EU as an institution, overall there is still a lot of support.

In other countries, the EU enjoys strong support. In Germany, 67% of people responded positively to the survey, 70% of them saying they want to stay in the euro zone.

In addition, support was still strong in Spain, with 63% of them saying the EU affected them positively ”and 47% of respondents in France said the same.
