The majority of the British public still want to have their say on the proposed European constitution, despite the overwhelming majority saying they would vote against it. The survey, conducted after the French referendum, shows that just 22% of the public say they would currently vote "yes" to "approve the treaty establishing a constitution for the European constitution", with 56% saying they would vote "no" and 22% saying they do not vote. When the "don't knows" are excluded, the result would mean a no vote by a margin of 72% to 28%.
MORI interviewed a representative quota sample of 515 adults aged 18+ by telephone on 1 June 2005. Data are weighted to match the profile of the population.

Q3 Were you pleased or sorry that the French voted against the European constitution?
Q4 Do you think the French government should ask the French people to vote again on whether or not to approve the European constitution?
