An ITV News/ComRes poll has found that the proportion of Britons that would vote for the UK to stay in the EU has fallen by four percentage points.
The figure has dropped to 36 per cent following the row over Jean-Claude Juncker’s appointment as President of the European Council last week.
If a referendum was to be held, 43 per cent of people would vote for Britain to leave the EU.
And 34 per cent believe membership of the EU is a “good” thing for the country, a fall of three per cent, while 44 per cent say it is a “bad” thing.
It should be no surprise that David Cameron failed to stop such a long-standing EU figure being nominated as European Commission president.
The PM's friends in Europe are bewildered that he would rather go down in flames than try for the best deal possible in the circumstances.
