Two of three Norwegians don't want more refugees
Norway's recent decision to tighten asylum policies in order to bring down the number of refugees seems to be in tune with popular sentiment, a new poll shows.
In a matter of just five months, Norwegians appear to have largely reversed their outlook on accepting refugees. In a poll conducted by Ipsos MMI and published on Saturday, 42 percent of respondents said that Norway should accept fewer refugees, 25 percent said the numbers shouldn't raise from the current level and 28 percent thought the Nordic country should take in more refugees.
A similar poll carried out in June showed nearly the opposite, with 42 percent advocating for more refugees and 31 percent saying there should be fewer let in to Norway.
