Majority against EU

There are a majority against EU membership for the first time since August 2002. A total of 45 percent said no, while 42.2 percent are in favor of Norwegian membership.

A total of 12.7 percent of the voters do not have an opinion on the matter, according to the July poll conducted by Sentio-Norstat on behalf of the papers Nationen, Klassekampen and Dagen.

Anders Todal Jensen, election researcher and professor in political science at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), said he thinks the increase against membership may partly be explained by the fact that the Labor party priorities a change of government before a possible EU membership.

«People have probably been affected by the fact that Jens Stoltenberg prefers a change in government rather than a new EU battle,» Todal Jenssen said to Klassekampen. «It may have encouraged people against membership and people for membership are less eager on gaining membership now.»
