"The establishments within Europe and that pretty much dominate Greek politics are always spreading scare stories [about Greece exiting the eurozone]. Of course, they never actually look to the real scare story, the real nightmare which is staying with euro," Robert Oulds said.
Speaking of the poll’s results, Oulds noted that "people are usually very conservative about whether they want to use the currency or not."
The Bruges Group director stressed that Greece’s new currency would be weaker than the euro but that fact could benefit the country’s trade and tourism sectors.
Years of speculation about Greece’s possible exit from the eurozone amid the country’s government debt crisis were fueled further by the recent election win by the anti-austerity Syriza party.
