EU Citizens Want Their Own Brexit-Style Vote

Many European Union citizens would like to follow Britain in having a chance to vote on membership of the bloc, although fewer than one in five support leaving it.

That’s the finding of a poll by the Washington-based Pew Research Center, which questioned 9,935 people in 10 countries including Britain about the EU. Combined, the nations account for 80 percent of the EU population.

While 53 percent of those surveyed outside of the U.K. would like votes on whether to remain within the region, only 18 percent said they would back leaving.
