Eurobarometer survey examines the Irish referendum on the Lisbon Treaty

hThe 'no' voters presented a much wider range of reasons to explain their preference. A lack of knowledge of the Treaty (22%) was the main one, while others included the protection of Irish identity (12%), safeguarding neutrality, lack of trust in politicians, losing the right to a permanent Commissioner and protecting the tax system (all 6%). 'No' voters supported the view that the result would put Ireland in a strong position to renegotiate the treaty (76%).h
