Blair rejected as EU president among UK voters

PoliticsHome asked a sample of 1,258 voters from across the country to consider some hypothetical scenarios, designed to get to the heart of their order of preference.

First, given the choice between Tony Blair and “some other foreign candidate” to fill the role – thought to be the scenario in which Blair would be favoured – the public still reject the idea. All groups except Labour supports choose “some other foreign candidate” over Blair. The overall result falls against the former Prime Minister by a margin of 47% to 37%.

Second, asked who would make a better President of the European Council, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, the public are overwhelmingly more supportive of Blair. He receives the majority of support from all political groups including Labour supporters, and is preferred to his former Chancellor by a margin of 57% to 11%.

Third, the public would prefer to see no European president at all. 53% of voters are against the idea of a president of the European Council, with conservative supporters (76%) and non-aligned voters (59%) most strongly against the idea.
31% of voters would like to see a European president, with Labour supporters the only political group that back the idea by a majority.
