The poll found that 51 percent of respondents thought immigration was “generally positive” for the country whereas 35 percent believed it was “generally negative” and 14 percent were unsure about the immigration impact on Australia.
The topmost reason that majority of respondents gave to support immigration was that it “creates economic growth.” However, the reason of people opposing immigration was “new immigrants often fail to assimilate with the rest of the population.”
Well, the majority of the opposing parties or for the matter, current party that suggests that there is congestion in the cities like Sydney and Melbourne due to immigration is not gaining grip because only 13 percent of people said that they opposed immigration due to overcrowding.
This poll was conducted online from 24 April to 29 April and the total of 1010 respondents answered the survey.
