A poll by the main Danish daily the Berlingske Tidende indicates that 63 percent Danes want to bring their troops home from Iraq.
Published on Thursday, the survey reveals a rift between public opinion and the government's expressed plans to keep the soldiers in the war-torn country.
About 41% of the Danes questioned said Denmark, which has 525 soldiers in Iraq, should set a date for pulling them out, while 22% said the government should call the troops home immediately, according to the Gallup poll of 1015 people conducted between 18 and 20 January.
Thirty-five percent of those polled said they felt the Danish soldiers should stay in Iraq as long as they are needed. Two per cent of those polled were undecided.
