Swedish Euro Opposition Grows

A new poll shows that Swedes are more opposed than ever to adopting the euro.

Forty-nine percent now say they would vote against joining the European single currency if there was a new referendum, while 36 percent say they would vote yes. The rest were undecided.

That means the gap between proponents and opponents has almost doubled since a similar survey in May.

In the September 2003 referendum, more than 56 percent of those voting rejected the euro, while just under 42 percent were in favor.
