Little Support For EU Treaty

Just a quarter of Irish citizens would support the EU Reform Treaty - a lower figure than that for the earlier failed EU Constitution.

A new opinion poll published this morning found that 25% of respondents to the Irish Times poll said they would vote "yes" to the proposed new treaty, with 13% saying they would vote "no" and a massive 62% undecided.

The Reform Treaty contains most of the changes that were included in the EU Constitution, which had to be abandoned after it was rejected by French and Dutch voters.

In a poll last March, 46% of respondents said they would vote in favour of the constitution and 12% said they would vote against.
