A national poll conducted in France shows that nearly three quarters of French support the idea of a referendum in the coming months following the “Yellow Vests” movement. However, they are divided on his holding on the day of the European elections on May 26, 2019.

While the idea of a referendum is gradually making its way, in the wake of the Great National Debate, a survey conducted by IFOP for the Journal du Dimanche (JDD) shows that the organisation of a consultation of this type is favored by a large majority of French. 

73% of respondents, nearly 3 in 4 French, answer affirmatively to the question "You, personally, would you be in favor or not to hold a referendum in France in the coming months."  

In detail, they are 31% to show "quite favorable" and 42% to answer "rather favorable."
