Why Greece is on the brink of collapse – CNN
Greece is in danger of breaking down, a new poll has found, with the population of the country on the verge of a collapse.
The new poll by the Pew Research Center, which has been tracking Greek attitudes for the last few years, found that the country is currently the third most pessimistic nation on earth, after North Korea and Iraq.
The survey of more than 3,000 people in more than 100 countries, conducted online on Monday, showed that 69% of Greeks are worried about the future of their country, while 41% are concerned about the economic situation in their country.
On the other side, 41% said they are satisfied with the way things are going, while 43% were dissatisfied with the country’s direction.
The poll showed that the vast majority of Greeks want to remain in the euro zone, while nearly half of those surveyed said they want Greece to stay in the European Union.
In addition to the general pessimism, the poll found that only 29% of respondents said they were optimistic about the Greek economy.
That is down from the 46% who said the same in the poll in January.
The majority of the people surveyed in the survey said that the situation is very difficult, and that they are worried that the economy will continue to fall off the cliff.
But the poll also showed that while the public is very pessimistic about the situation, they are optimistic about their ability to get through it.
Only about 10% of people surveyed said that they were very optimistic about how the situation will change in the coming months.
The new findings come as Greece prepares to hold a referendum on whether or not to accept the bailout deal.
The deal is set to be signed by the end of this week, but it has not been officially ratified by the European Council.
According to the poll, 63% of the Greek public want the referendum to go ahead, while only 27% want the deal to be annulled.
The report comes after Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has insisted that the vote should take place as soon as possible.
