More than 7 in 10 Romanians would vote ‘remain’ in case of EU referendum

A total of 77% of Romanians would vote ‘remain’ if an EU membership referendum would be organized in Romania, according to an IRES study. Only 14% would want Romania to exit the EU, and 6% wouldn’t vote at all.

Although only half of Romanians heard of Brexit, a total of 85% have understood that the UK is leaving the EU.

The Romanians are also pessimistic. They anticipate adverse effects after the UK’s exit from the European Union, effects that would be strongly felt by the Romanians.

Seven out of ten respondents who heard of Brexit believe that Romania should speed up the process of integration into the European Union, and only 16% believe that this process should be slowed. Moreover, 69% believe that Romania has much to gain from being part of the EU.

Nine out of ten respondents agree with the idea that Romania should play an active role in relaunching the European project, a slightly higher share (93%) considering that Romania must show that it is still attached to the fundamental values and principles of the European Union.

The survey was carried out between July 13 and July 15 on a sample of 1,160 people.
