    Using voting participation data, this paper, written at the time of the "Big Bang" accession to the EU, argues that the east European entrants' determination to join the EU was coupled with vast popular uncertainty and self-doubt about that commitment. If accurate, this finding has serious implications for a possible divide between the resolutely pro-EU-membership political and business elites and the voters at large.
