Beyond the economic and strategic amputation implied by an exit of the UK from the European Union, "Brexit" would also boost the Europhobic discourse of certain national political movements, for example in the Netherlands some tabloid newspapers are already raising the issue of a referendum on the country's EU membership. If the UK did leave the EU might we fear a domino effect amongst other Member States? Which countries are tempted the most by this? This is the question we try to answer here, notably using Eurobarometer data as support focused on three main axes, each matching specific questions being raised in the various Member States: support to the EU, opinion about membership; the feeling that the country would be doing better, or not, if it left the EU.
