Most Icelanders continue to reject EU membership

More than two thirds of Icelanders would vote against joining the European Union if a referendum would be held on the matter according to a new opinion poll published yesterday by the Icelandic polling company MMR.

According to the poll 63.3 percent now oppose EU membership while less than a quarter support it or 24.2 percent. If only those who said yes or no are measured more than 72 percent would reject joining the bloc in a referendum.

Large majority of Icelanders has now rejected EU membership according to every single opinion poll published in Iceland since the summer of 2009 or for more than three and a half year.
