Majority of Swedes Say They Want Fewer Asylum Seekers

A majority of Swedes say they want to see fewer asylum applications than the country saw in 2019, with the proportion of that opinion increasing from a similar poll taken last year.

Polling firm Novus found that 63 per cent of Swedes want to take fewer asylum seekers than last year, when the country accepted around 22,000 new claims.

The results are seven per cent higher than a Novus poll conducted the year before which saw 56 per cent of the respondents saying they wanted to see fewer asylum applications, SVT reports.

Those wanting even more asylum applications have also decreased in the poll since last year. Just eight per cent said they wanted to see more asylum seekers arrive in Sweden.

Meanwhile, 19 per cent said they would be fine with the same number of asylum seekers as last year.
