Nézőpont: Most Central Europeans Believe Hungary Right On Migration
A survey by the Nézőpont Institute suggests that nearly one and a half times more central and eastern Europeans believe that Hungary is right about migration than the number of those who think the opposite, daily Magyar Idők said.

The survey commissioned by the paper polled people’s opinion in ten countries about European Union migrant quotas, receiving illegal migrants, the role of US financier George Soros and Hungary’s migrant policy. Nézőpont carried out the survey in Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia in June.

A sweeping majority is against the mandatory migrant quota in the countries surveyed, the paper said. Some 75% of central Europeans and 80% of central and eastern Europeans are against the quota, it added.

In the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia, three countries of the Visegrad group, 53% expressed support for Hungary’s migrant policies, as against 27% who expressed disagreement. In the case of Germany and Austria, the ratios were in reverse.
