I just came across a YouGov poll from last week which asked respondents in seven European countries how far they agreed or disagreed with the statement, "My country is influential in European affairs". The upper chart below plots total agreement in each country, while the lower chart plots strong agreement. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the conventional wisdom that Germany holds particularly firm sway in Europe does not appear to be lost on the German people.
Nearly 60% of Germans agree that their country is influential in European affairs, compared to less than less than 40% of French, and less than 30% of Britons. Similarly, almost 20% of Germans strongly agree their country is influential in European affairs, compared to less than 10% of French, and less than 5% of Britons.
