Commenting article: Result of July 5 Referendum in Greece Too Close to Call – Poll

With less than 72 hours left to Sunday’s bailout referendum in Greece, a poll suggests that the majority of Greeks would support the creditors’ proposals for comprehensive structural reforms in return for fresh bailout money.

A GPO poll of 1,000 people conducted on Tuesday and cited by euro2day.gr showed support for the bailout at 47.1% and opposition at 43.2%. The rest of those polled were either undecided or planned not to vote.

This Greek situation, is and has become a farce. A modern day "Greek Tragedy".

They've had years to sort themselves out but haven't. Tsipras can go stick it up his tsipro, he has the audacity to whinge about deadlines and blackmail, after faffing about since becoming PM and then urging the Greek citizens to vote in a certain way. Isn't that another form of blackmail?

They cooked the books to unlawfully join the EU and EZ, which the EU fell for due to lack of diligence.

Why they have ignored the deadlines and negotiations in a timely manner, and decided to call a snap referendum at such a late date, is ridiculous and questionable.

Interesting to see how the polls stack up before and after the banks closed, people are easily swayed by money or lack of it; and I feel that the referendum will be a waste of time and will not comprehensively decide which way to go, but is going to fester new problems internally. Also, I think that most Greeks are or will be so confused by the whole referendum fiasco, that it may be pointless to vote for anything or anyone. We don't even know what the referendum question is, at this stage.
