Study identifies Europe’s six ‘political tribes’ – POLITICO

my notes ( ? )

When it comes to how Europeans identify themselves, there are actually six different “political tribes,”... the current polarized debate of “pro-EU” versus “anti-EU” fails to capture the complexity ... 36 percent were the “hesitant Europeans”... proud to belong to the EU but also concerned about issues like immigration....
“contented Europeans.” Twenty-three percent ... “optimistic” pro-Europeans ... prefers the status quo...extreme ends of the spectrum are the “EU rejecters” (14 percent) and the EU “federalists” (8 percent)...tend to have a disproportionate influence in the political sphere...
“austerity rebels,” 9% demand a “looser, more democratic EU driven by solidarity, with powers returned to member states.”.. “frustrated pro-Europeans,” 9% who want a “more integrated EU driven by progressive values.”...
‘Hesitant Europeans’ — the largest tribe, and the key swing group for the future
