IIRC, only two of the countries that have already approved the document did so by a public vote..the others all had their legislatures pass bills...is this so?

Only one country (Spain) has approved by referendum. All the rest have been parliamentary approvals.

Though, to be fair, I think all the nations except Germany that ratified in parliament without a referendum would've easily approved the constitution if a referendum were held.

Germany would've been close and might've defeated it. Sweden is the only other nation that's not holding a referendum where I think it would get defeated if they did hold one. It might get close in Austria or Finland too, if they held one.

My guess is that Ireland, Denmark, and certainly Britain will all vote no.
