A total of 69 per cent of Danish people now endorse the country’s membership of the union, according to a Voxmeter poll - up 10 per cent from the week leading up to the Brexit vote.
Meanwhile, the number of people demanding a similar referendum has dropped from 41 per cent to 32 per cent, as Europe began to feel the impact of Britain’s decision.
The morning after Brexit was announced, Danish prime minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen ruled out the possibility of the country holding a vote on EU membership despite protests from Eurosceptic politicians.
He told a press conference in Copenhagen: “We belong to the EU and I am not operating on [the belief] that we should have a referendum on that basic question.”
Professor Marlene Wind, from the University of Copenhagen, told Bloomberg: “This poll confirms that nobody wants to put themselves in the kind of mess the British have created for themselves.
“Prior to the Brexit vote there were lots of predictions that a British exit would trigger others to put their EU membership on the line.
“The Brexit vote has been a wake-up call across Europe, and people are now seeing it as a big gamble with plenty of uncertainty.”
Analysts warned of a possible domino-effect after Britain’s decision to leave, believing other countries could follow its lead and choose to sever ties with the European Union.
Denmark has several major Eurosceptic parties, including the Red-Green Alliance and the Danish People’s Party, and has negotiated several opt-outs from the EU over the past few decades.
Meanwhile, Sweden and Finland have also backed continued EU membership, with surges in support to 52 per cent in the former and 68 per cent in the latter since Brexit was announced.
The Swedish and Finnish prime ministers have both repeatedly ruled out the prospect of having referendums in their countries.
