Surprisingly, there is little disagreement between people on the right and left over this issue.
The Rebel European attitudes to Muslim immigration are reportedly in line with Donald Trump’s — in fact, according to a new poll, an average of 55% of Europeans agree with the notion that ‘all further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped.’
The study, carried out by UK-based think-tank Chatham House found that “majorities in all but two of the ten states [surveyed] agreed” with the aforementioned notion — 71% in Poland, 65% in Austria, 64% in Hungary and Belgium, 61% in France, 58% in Greece, 53% in Germany, and 51% in Italy. A sizeable minority of 47% in the United Kingdom and 41% in Spain disagreed.
Ultimately, the sentiment across Europe is clear — people are anxious about mass migration from mostly Muslim countries. And it’s politicians and parties on the Right, those that are proposing that we confront that, that are rising to new heights.
