An opinion poll carried out by the European Union has revealed that for the majority of its 370 million citizens, family life is the most important value, followed by work, friends, leisure and religion. Politics is not on the list.
The European Values Research Poll, which studies the personal opinions and preoccupations of Western European countries since the early 1980s, has confirmed that 86% of EU citizens consider that a good family life is their most important priority.
54% of those questioned put their professional life in first place, while 47% opted for their friends. The study confirmed that “Politics is not a priority value in any European country”.
