The three question poll, with a sample size of 2003 men and women aged 18 or older, was conducted between March 11-15. 34% of those polled said that they were opposed to France's continued membership in the EU, with 66% saying they were in favor of the country remaining in the supranational union.
At the same time, when asked hypothetically about whether the EU "will exist in twenty years," 36% said that they believed that it 'definitely' or 'probably' wouldn't, while 64% said that it 'definitely' or 'probably' would. Interestingly, only 20% of respondents were 'definitely' convinced that the EU would continue to exist.
Moreover, when asked about whether they are in favor or opposed to France's continued membership in the Schengen Area, a majority of respondents, 53%, said that they were opposed, with 47% saying they were in favor. This is important, the magazine suggested, since the polling was taken before the Brussels terror attacks.
"Politically, these people [who are opposed to the EU] feel closer to the National Front (78% of their supporters voted in favor of a Frexit), but also include supporters from the Left Front (which jives with the fact that nearly one in three voters of [Left Party founder] Jean-Luc Melenchon are in favor of EU exit)." For the record, the Left Front electoral federation is opposed to President Francois Hollande and his Socialist government.
Ultimately, adding their own two cents of political commentary, Causeur suggested that "our survey demonstrates, to those who may have had their doubts, that Europe today has two options: to finally protect its citizens (from terrorism, uncontrolled immigration, deindustrialization, unemployment, globalization) or to disappear; not all at once, but to slowly dissolving into a deep, turbulent history."
