Majority of Swedes favor nuclear power.

According to a new poll, a majority of Swedes want to keep using nuclear power as it is being used today. 

64 percent of those polled were in favor of continuing with nuclear, while just 16 percent wanted to end its use.  In addition, 71 percent of Social Democrats want to see nuclear power continue. 

The poll comes just weeks after the ruling minority Social Democrats announced the closing of the Barsebäck reactor in southern Sweden in 2005.
