Eighty-nine percent of Poles in a CBOS survey supported Poland's EU membership (up 8 percent from February 2016), 7 percent were against and 4 percent could not say.

Fifty-five percent of the respondents said EU membership did not markedly limit Poland's sovereignty (up 3 points), 35 percent believed it did (unchanged).

Ninety-three percent of those polled said they had heard about the European Parliament (EP) and the European Commission (EC), and 90 percent knew about the EU Court of Justice (CJEU). Thirty percent of the participants declared they were rather quite knowledgeable about the EP, 27 percent about the EC and 26 percent about the CJEU.

Fifty-two percent of those surveyed said Poland should obey the EU's recommendations regarding Poland's justice reforms, 34 percent said the opposite.

CBOS ran the survey on February 6-16 on a random sample of 958 adult Poles.
