How can citizens declare any trust on the EU Parliament if they do not know much about it? In this chapter we defend that EU citizens mostly use three cues in order to make their mind about this elusive and complex EU institution: EU general support, EU country sociotropic calculations, and the projections coming from national parliaments. However, the relative weight of these factors has changes overtime as a result of the increasing awareness on the public of the consequences of the EU integration process. The implementation of the Euro constitutes a good experimental opportunity to text this hypothesis.
