Feb. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Icelandic support for joining the European Union declined this month, a Capacent Gallup poll commissioned by the Federation of Icelandic Industries showed.

Support for joining the EU fell to 26.3 percent from 37 percent, according to the poll, published on the pro-membership group’s website. Opposition to joining the 27-nation bloc fell to 56.2 percent from 63 percent in a January survey.

Capacent Gallup polled 1,350 people from Jan. 12 through Jan. 20. Of those questioned, 64.2 percent answered. The margin of error was 0.1 percent.

Iceland started EU accession talks in 2010 and the government has said it targets a referendum on membership as early as next year.
