(EU Observer) According to a fresh opinion poll from Greens Analyseinstitut, published in Danish business daily BÃ¸rsen on Friday (3 June), 39.5 per cent of Danes would reject the Constitution...
Only one in three Danes (30.8 per cent) would now approve the Constitution, while 29.7 per cent were undecided.
Although both France and the Netherlands have soundly rejected the E.U. Constitution (with the former citing Anglo-Saxon fears and the latter nationalsovereigntyy) the Danes are still in favor of holding a referendum on the issue, despite the fact that previous rejections have killed the document altogether. Approximately two thirds of Danes (or 65.3%) desire to add their opinion about the document as well, regardless of it's current vitality or lack thereof.
But even if Denmark gives it's approval of the measure, Norway could potentially put "another nail in the coffin" against the E.U. Constitution.
According to a new opinion poll conducted on behalf of Norway's largest newspaper Verdens Gang, one third (35.5 per cent) of Norwegians are in favour of joining the EU, while 44.9 per cent said they were opposed to the idea of membership.
With two nations already rejecting the document "as is," another nation voting against it may discourage other countries from voting in a referendum, as nations like Britain have not looked favorably upon the document. As the constitution continues to disintegrate in the political realm, Europe's leaders will need to pause and reflect on how to satisfy all of Europe's needs before making another attempt to unify again.
