Seven out of ten Norwegians would say no in a referendum on joining the EU, according to a new poll by Sentio market research, which finds the opposition is consistent across all age-groups, regions and education levels.
The Conservative Party, likely to be dominant after the general election on September 9th, still officially supports applying for membership. 
 
However, they are supported in this by less than a third of their own party members, and just 19.2 percent of the wider population, according to the pollsters.
 
Norwegians narrowly voted against joining the European Union in a referendum held in 1972, when 46.5 percent voted in favour and 53.5 percent against. 
 
A second referendum, held in 1994, was closer still with 47.8 percent voting in favour, and 52.2 percent against.
