Chatham House : « What do Europeans think about Muslim Immigration ? »

Thursday, 02 March 2017

"Leaders of Europe’s populist right-wing parties, including Geert Wilders (Netherlands), Marine Le Pen (France), Nigel Farage (United Kingdom) and Matteo Salvini (Italy) have heaped praise on Donald Trump’s immigration policy and his discourse against muslim immigration" says a ssurvey of the British Think Tank, Chatham House .

But the survey realized before Mr Trump became president of the United States also shows that « there is evidence to suggest that both Trump and these radical right-wing parties reflect an underlying reservoir of public support ».

Ten thousand people from 10 European states were  asked about what they think about migration « from mainly Muslim countries ». The results « are striking and sobering. They suggest that public opposition to any further migration from predominantly Muslim states is by no means confined to Trump’s electorate in the US but is fairly widespread »write authors of the survey.
