On the eve of the EU Election, EU Commission President Juncker said: “These populist, nationalists, stupid nationalists, they are in love with their own countries. They don’t like those coming from far away, I like those coming from far away … we have to act in solidarity with those who are in a worse situation than we are in.”
A new survey by the Századvég Foundation shows Juncker is condemning the majority of Europeans.
The survey shows for instant:
-About 55 % of Europeans describe the migration situation in the following terms: “Most of the immigrants come to EU for economic reason and state benefits”
-About 60 % say “The mass influx of immigrants from outside of the continent will set back the economy of the EU.”
The 2019 survey by the Századvég Foundation was conducted not only in the member states of the EU, but in Ukraine and the Western Balkans, too. For the 2019 survey, the same methodology was used as in previous surveys (35 countries, with 35,000 randomly selected adults in all.
The researchers concluded: “Migration and terrorism are still a major concern for all European societies. The overwhelming majority is concerned about illegal immigration and the occurrence of terrorist attacks and expects further mass migration. Most of Europe is dissatisfied with Brussels’ handling of the immigration crisis, every second eu citizen believes that central European member states have handled the migration crisis better. According to 58 percent of respondents europe should preserve its Christian culture and tradition.
Pew research survey of 2018 showed: Most Europeans are opposed to more migration into Europe, only 10 percent wont more immigrants. Many worldwide oppose more migration – both into and out of their countries
