Two thirds of voters have backed a cut in British contributions to the EU in a ComRes survey conducted for the Independent on Sunday and Sunday Mirror.
In the poll, 66% said UK payments "should be cut rather than frozen" with 12% against and 22% unsure.
A majority (58%) also agreed that Britain should withdraw from the EU altogether "if some EU powers cannot be restored to the UK", including a 53% majority of Labour voters.
Britain must take a "hard headed" approach to problems facing the EU, thinks Labour leader Ed Miliband.
Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph, Miliband said that budget reform is needed as well as an overhaul of immigration rules and austerity measures.
Labour has posted a 12-point opinion poll lead over the Tories - its widest margin of advantage in a ComRes survey for more than seven years.
The Opposition gained two points to 43% on a month ago and the Conservatives dropped two to 31%, in the poll conducted for the Independent on Sunday and Sunday Mirror.
It showed the Liberal Democrats static on 10% and Ukip down one on 8%.
