Meanwhile, 40 percent of those polled believe Poland should accept refugees, but only temporarily, until they are able to go back home. Only four percent claim the Polish government should allow refugees to settle in Poland.
Two thirds of those polled said Poland should not accept refugees coming to the EU from the Middle East and Africa, but 58 percent said Poland should accept refugees from the war-torn regions of eastern Ukraine.
The authors of the poll said that it was conducted in the first half of December, before a Polish driver was shot and killed in recent terror attack at a Christmas market in Berlin. (tf/rg)
