Do French voters want a Frexit referendum?

The European Union has been a central talking point in the presidential election campaign. Candidates like Marine Le Pen and Jean-Luc Mélenchon have been outspoken critics of Brussels, whereas Emmanuel Macron has positioned himself as the defender of the European project in France. Thanks to our partnership with Vox Pop Labs, we know that 49% of voters would like to see a referendum on France's EU membership. We speak to Howard Cohen of Vox Pop Labs for more on what French voters think.
