There will be no exit polls in the EU election. They made it a criminal offense for any country in the EU to publish exit polls, or any information about how people have voted during the election, before 22:00 BST on Sunday 26 May. In the UK, the vote took place on May 23rd. Voters in Ireland turn out on the 24th. Those in the Czech Republic, Latvia, Malta, and Slovakia voted today on May 25th and the remaining 21 EU nations cast their ballots on May 26th. Theresa May’s disastrous performance sent the Conservative Party down to 7% in the polls against Nigel Farage’s 37% for his new BREXIT Party.
The results are going to be interesting to see just how much of an anti-EU backlash has taken place throughout Europe. It will take a major victory for the anti-EU movement to perhaps give at least some pause to this agenda that cannot possibly succeed even structurally in Europe. The question becomes very clear. Will Brussels’ dig in its heels and refuse to reform? Or will Brussels finally listen to reason?
