A new Pew Global Attitudes Project survey shows Europeans with a deeply ambivalent attitude about the future of the euro and a stark divide in optimism about the future. The New York Times summarizes the results here.

Merkel’s political fortunes have been flagging in her own country lately, and obviously anti-German sentiment is at an all-time high in Greece, but it seems like other Europeans may not be buying the anti-German line pushed by some euroskeptics. It will be interesting to see if it stays that way, particularly in Italy and Spain.
