Satisfactory EU deal unlikely

57% think a satisfactory new deal is unlikely

Despite some of the headline grabbing concessions that have been announced recently, only 17% of likely voters think that the deal that David Cameron has secured so far is good, while two in five (42%) think it is bad. An ever larger proportion (57%) think it is unlikely that David Cameron will be able to secure satisfactory terms†in†the final deal of Britain?s renegotiated membership of the European Union.In our latest polling we found that the Prime Minister comes in for some criticism from voters on the European front, with just under half (46%) thinking that David Cameron has done a bad job representing the UK?s interests in the European Union, while only 28% think he has done a good job.However, despite some poor opinions of David Cameron’s attempts at renegotiation so far the Conservative Party remains the most trusted on Europe, albeit narrowly. Just over a quarter (28%) of voters trust the Tories the most to handle the UK?s relationship with the rest of the European Union, while 22% trust Labour the most and 17% trust UKIP.Opinium Research carried out an online survey of 1,964 GB adults aged 18+, including 1,271 likely voters, from 9th to 12th February 2016. Results have been weighted to nationally representative criteria.
