The Foreign Policy Centre has published the results of the first poll to comprehensively gauge public opinion towards the European Constitution. It includes a detailed analysis of the battleground groups that will need to be won over.

Mark Leonard and Richard Gowan set out a strategy to win the refendum, argue that pro-Europeans should not draw false lessons from the famous victory of the 1975 campaign.
