Support for EU 'at record level' in Denmark
76 percent of people responding to the survey said that the EU was a ‘good thing’. That represents the highest level in Denmark since Eurobarometer began asking the question in 1974. Only seven percent said they thought they EU was a ‘bad thing’ in the latest poll. A record high proportion – 84 percent – also said they considered EU membership to be advantageous for Denmark, while 80 believed their votes counted within the EU. The poll comes a year before Denmark is scheduled to hold general elections. Overall support for the EU amongst Europeans is growing on almost all parameters. Meanwhile, sovereignty – the area in which Denmark traditionally shows the most scepticism towards the political and economic union – remains an issue for people in the Scandinavian country, according to the poll.
