A record number of Germans believe that being part of the European Union is a good thing for the country, a new poll showed Friday, amid creeping euroskepticism among several neighbours.
Forty percent of those asked said membership of the 28-nation bloc reaped benefits, marking the highest level ever recorded in the DeutschlandTrend poll.
Some 19 percent, on the other hand, saw it as leading to disadvantages, the poll for ARD television showed.
In April 2010 the figures had stood at 25 and 27 percent respectively.
