In Bulgaria trust in the EU has gone up from 4 to 4.5 out of 10 in the period from April to July. However, Bulgarians firmly give the government poor marks for its support during the crisis – from 3.3 in April down to 2.9 out of 10 in July.

Poland is the only country where trust in the government is lower than it is in Bulgaria – 2.6-2.4, though trust in the EU is considerably higher – 5.1-6.2.

The survey is by the EU agency Eurofound which focuses on societal change and trust in institutions. Trust in the EU has gone up, on average, from 4.6 in April to 5.1 in July, whereas the average level of trust in national governments has dropped from 4.8 to 4.6 out of 10, BGNES reports.
