In a survey completed more than two weeks before President Donald Trump issued his travel ban executive order, an average of 55 percent of 10,000 people in 10 European countries said that migration should be stopped from majority-Muslim nations.

The survey was conducted by Chatham House of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the London-based think tank, and released on Tuesday.

It found that people in all but two of the 10 countries supported ending migration from the majority-Muslim areas.

Respondents in Austria, Poland, Hungary, France and Belgium were the strongest about stopping further migration, the poll found.

Only Poland is not embroiled in the Syrian refugee crisis or has experienced terrorist attacks in recent years.

The survey was conducted from Dec. 12 to Jan. 11. Trump signed the travel ban order on Jan. 27.

The total number of Europeans surveyed was 10,195, averaging 1,000 individuals per country.

They were asked whether they agreed or disagreed with this statement: "All further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped."

Here are the results:

Total average of the 10 European countries:

  • Agree: 55 percent.
  • Disagree: 20 percent.

Poland:

  • Agree: 71 percent.
  • Disagree: 9 percent.

Austria:

  • Agree: 65 percent.
  • Disagree: 18 percent.

Belgium:

  • Agree: 64 percent.
  • Disagree: 15 percent.

Hungary:

  • Agree: 64 percent.
  • Disagree: 12 percent.

France:

  • Agree: 61 percent.
  • Disagree: 16 percent.

Greece:

  • Agree: 58 percent.
  • Disagree: 20 percent.

Germany:

  • Agree: 53 percent.
  • Disagree: 19 percent.

Italy:

  • Agree: 51 percent.
  • Disagree: 23 percent.

United Kingdom:

  • Agree: 47 percent.
  • Disagree: 23 percent.

Spain:

  • Agree: 41 percent.
  • Disagree: 32 percent.

 

"Our results are striking and sobering," Chatham House authors said in their analysis.

"They suggest that public opposition to any further migration from predominantly Muslim states is by no means confined to Trump's electorate in the U.S. but is fairly widespread."
