Majority of EU Citizens Have a Negative View of the Euro

According to the Transatlantic Trends 2010 Report, there was little support for Europe’s common currency in the countries surveyed that use the euro. When asked whether using the euro has been a good or bad thing for their country’s economy, almost all majorities in the eurozone sample responded negatively. The euro was not appealing from the outside either. Majorities of the British (83%) and Polish (53%), and a plurality of Bulgarians (42%), thought that using the euro would be a bad thing for their economies. However, more than half of the EU respondents (57%) felt that economic difficulties in Europe should lead to greater commitment to build a stronger European Union.
