eupinions: Europeans are personally optimistic, but pessimistic about their own country

A majority of Europeans look positively into their personal future, but negatively into the future of their own country.

At the same time, the strong tendency of Europeans to have a pessimistic view of their own country's future has clear political implications - especially in terms of party preference. This is shown by our new eupinions study "The Optimism Gap".
