Women, young people, manual workers voted No - Lisbon survey10/07/2008 - 10:34:59
More than two-thirds of Irish voters found the No campaign in the Lisbon Treaty referendum more convincing, according to a poll conducted by the European Commission.
Some details of the poll were published by the EC shortly after the referendum last month, but a more in-depth analysis released today shows that just 15% said the Yes side was more convincing.
Sixty-seven per cent said they were more convinced by the No campaign.
Just over one-fifth of those who voted no said they did so because of a lack of knowledge.
The No vote was higher among women, younger voters, manual workers and people with lower levels of education.
