Two-thirds of Hungarian voters support the government’s migration policy, a survey conducted by the Nézőpont Institute for daily Magyar Idők shows.
Of the voting age population, 86 percent of respondents were against and only 7 percent in favour of allowing the EU to resettle non-EU nationals in Hungary without the consent of parliament.
The ratio of voters opposed to mandatory resettlement has remained over 80 percent since a referendum on the issue was held in the autumn of 2016,
the paper said.
Support for mandatory resettlement of asylum seekers is highest in Budapest, at 14 percent, but is under 10 percent for all other cities and demographic groups, it added.
The closure of Hungary’s southern border, on September 15, 2015, is supported by 97 percent of Fidesz sympathisers, by 94 percent of the supporters of conservative Jobbik,
and 57 percent of the supporters of leftist parties.
As we wrote before, also an interesting survey: the latest Magyar Ifjúsági Kutatás [Hungarian Youth Study] has been made public, and it reveals a lot of interesting (and concerning) things about the younger generations of Hungarians. Results suggest that financial difficulties are the major concern of 15-29-year-olds, read more HERE.
