Map above created by reddit user Reilly616

The map above shows how each European Union (EU) country views the EU as a whole based on polls conducted by Eurobarometerin May 2016 vs November 2017.

It shows the net difference between the positive and negative scores based on the following question:

In general, does the EU conjure up for you a very positive, fairly positive, neutral, fairly negative or very negative image?

Positive scores mean more positive feelings than negative and negative scores mean the opposite.

[…] The 5 countries with the biggest increase in positive image are: Germany, Cyprus, Belgium, Spain and Portugal.

[…] All countries, with the exception of Croatia, shifted to a more positive view of the EU. And even then, Croatia still has a +13 rating.

The 5 most pro-EU countries are currently: Ireland, Bulgaria, Portugal, Luxembourg and Lithuania.
