The majority of Europeans would support a Trump-like travel ban on immigration from predominantly Muslim countries, according to a poll, NBC reported.
About 55 percent of the 10,000 surveyed across 10 countries agree that immigration from predominantly Muslim countries should be halted. Chatham House, the London-based think tank that conducted the poll, called the findings “striking and sobering.”
The poll comes after a string of terrorist attacks over the last 18 months that have caused tensions across Europe as countries decide how to manage their borders.
