For almost a decade, a majority of Danes have supported Denmark’s efforts in Afghanistan, but there seems to be a change in attitude on whether troops should continue to be stationed there.
In April 2008 and February 2009, 48 percent of Danes supported Danish troops being stationed in Afghanistan, but in August 2010 that support has dropped to 32 percent, according to an Epinion poll for DR.
On the other hand, there is a clear increase in the number of those against. In April 2008 and February 2009, 41 percent were against posting Danish soldiers to Afghanistan. In August 2010 that number has risen to 55 percent.
