Almost three-quarters of Irish voters are opposed to a second referendum on the EU’s new reform treaty, a new poll published yesterday (27 July) revealed, dealing a blow to EU leaders’ hopes of rescuing the text. . . . Of those who voiced an opinion, 62% said they would vote no in a second referendum, while 34% said they would back the treaty, which aims to overhaul the Union’s institutions and procedures.

The new figures would mean that, compared to the first run on 12 June, where 53.4% of the Irish rejected the text (EurActiv 13/06/08), the no camp could further increase its lead by 6 percentage points to a commanding 24-point lead in a rerun.

I’d be interested to see how this would poll elsewhere in Europe/
