Only 29.5 percent are against it. 'Nuclear Sharing' is a programme that allows Nato countries without nuclear weapons to gain access to nuclear warheads. Last week, Andrzej Duda, the Polish president, said in an interview that Poland is in talks with the United States about joining the 'Nuclear Sharing' programme amid growing threats from Russia. "The problem first of all is that we don't have nuclear weapons," he said and added that there is "no indication that in the near future" Poland will acquire nuclear weapons.
