Multiple Studies: Europeans Support ‘Travel Ban’ More Than Americans

That’s because Europeans are living it today. We’re not (yet). 

Studies Show Europeans Support a ‘Muslim Ban’ More Than Americans 

Polls are so subjective. Case in point: the results of this particular survey even shocked the poll-maker.

The Queen Elizabeth II Academy for Leadership in International Affairs, more commonly known as Chatham House, conducted a survey among 10,000 people across 10 European countries. Chatham House gave each person the same statement, and then asked whether the person agreed, disagreed, or neither.

Here’s the statement: “All further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped.”

The results:

Overall, across all 10 of the European countries an average of 55% agreed that all further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped, 25% neither agreed nor disagreed and 20% disagreed.

Majorities in all but two of the ten states agreed, ranging from 71% in Poland, 65% in Austria, 53% in Germany and 51% in Italy to 47% in the United Kingdom and 41% in Spain. In no country did the percentage that disagreed surpass 32%.

That means that only one in five Europeans surveyed think that “migration from mainly Muslim countries” should continue. In fact, not one single country in this study had even a third of its surveyed population disagree with the study’s focus statement.
