Just 17% believe ‘yes’ campaigners who say the treaty focuses on trade and 37% are unsure, the poll showed.
The Netherlands will hold a referendum on whether the Dutch should complete the treaty ratification process on Wednesday. The result of the vote is only advisory and at least 30% of the electorate have to vote for it to have any legal weight.
The Ipsos poll also shows that just over half of voters (52%) do not consider the referendum is about the EU in general. Of the rest, 28% say their vote is an anti-EU vote and 20% say their vote is in support of the institution.
Just over half (56%) of voters think the government should respect the result of the referendum, as long as the 30% threshold is reached. The poll indicates that the ‘no’ camp are still ahead but does not say how many people are likely to vote.
