Swedish Support to Adopt Euro Falls to Record Low, Poll Shows

Dec. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Swedish support for joining the euro slumped to a record low since voters turned down the European single currency in a referendum eight years ago, a poll by the statistics office showed.

Of those surveyed, 11.2 percent were in favor of joining the euro while 80.4 percent would vote against joining the single currency, the poll published by Statistics Sweden today showed. It surveyed 5,907 people between Nov. 1 and Nov. 27.

Sweden is unlikely to seek euro accession for a long time as voters recoil from the currency bloc’s deepening debt crisis, Swedish Finance Minister Anders Borg said on Dec. 6.

Those opposing the euro have outnumbered those in favor in all but one of Statistic Sweden’s bi-annual polls since Sweden turned down the currency in a September 2003 referendum with 54.6 percent voting against and 43.2 percent in favor.
