Majority of aussies worried about muslims
Mar 1st, 2011 at 11:05pm
 
60% of Australians identify problems with muslims


Quote:
Almost 60% worried by Muslim immigration
65% - no to religious discrimination
27% - pollies "genuine concern for future"
NEARLY 60 per cent of Australian voters are worried about Muslim immigration, an opinion survey today has reported.

But more voters, 65 per cent, believe migrants should not be discriminated against for their religion.

The polling by Essential Research taken over the past seven days has confirmed that Islamic immigration is perceived by many voters as a central political issue.

But the survey also found many of those more concerned were basing their views on incorrect information.

A clear majority, 61 per cent, who believe some politicians raise issues of race and religion to generate more votes. Just 27 per cent said those politicians were genuinely concerned about Australia's future.

That's extremely-selective reporting of the Essential research - for a fuller picture see: -

Concern about Muslims (pre information)

Q. Are you concerned about the number of Muslim people in Australia?
     Total      Vote Labor      Vote Lib/Nat      Vote Greens
Total concerned      57%      50%      69%      32%
Total not concerned      38%      46%      28%      68%
Very Concerned      28%      21%      37%      12%
Somewhat concerned      29%      29%      32%      20%
Not very concerned      21%      23%      19%      27%
Not at all concerned      17%      23%      9%      41%
Donít know/Refused      5%      4%      2%      -

57% were very or somewhat concerned about the number of Muslim people in Australia while 38% were not very or not at all concerned. Concern is higher among Liberal/National voters (69%) and lower among Greens voters (32%). †72% of people aged 55+ say they are concerned.

Level of concern is related to perceptions of the number of Muslim people in Australia. The table below shows that those who think there are higher numbers of Muslims in Australia are much more likely to be concerned.

           Estimated % Muslims in Australia
     Total      1-2%      3-5%      6-10%      Over 10%
Total concerned      57%      44%      52%      68%      79%
Total not concerned      38%

Muslims in Australia

Q. What percentage of Australian residents do you think are Muslim?

     Total      Vote Labor      Vote Lib/Nat      Vote Greens
1%      6%      6%      7%      8%
2%      11%      10%      14%      9%
3-5%      26%      26%      25%      37%
6-10%      20%      19%      22%      18%
More than 10%      19%      20%      19%      17%
Donít know      18%      20%      13%      11%

17% think that Muslims make up 1-2% of Australiaís population, 26% think they make up 3-5% and 39% think it is over 5%. The actual figure is 1.7% Ė meaning 65% have over-estimated the number of Muslims in Australia.

There were only minor differences between age, gender and voter groups.




There are several additional relevant tables on the Essential site - but they're not transferring neatly in the C&P and I'm too tired to bother to fiddle with converting screen prints and uploading them at this hour...

Essential Research found that the more people overestimated the number of Muslims in Australia, the more they were concerned by their presence.

Some 65 per cent of voters said Muslims made up more than two per cent of the population, when the actual proportion is 1.7 per cent.

Before being told that fact, 57 per cent said they were concerned about the number of Muslims here, and the same proportion said Islam was the fastest growing religion in Australia.

Some 38 per cent said they were not concerned.

Voters were then told Muslims made up 1.7 per cent of the population and that the fastest growing religions were Hinduism and Buddhism followed by Islam.

After that information, the proportion of concerned voters dropped slightly to 50 per cent.

A majority of voters, 57 per cent, said multiculturalism had been positive for Australia and 29 per cent said it had been totally negative.

I suggest that you re-read the information you've just posted - and then get back to us...

Not that I expect you to get it that it is the misleading and demonising propaganda that is creating the problem - since you're a serial offender yourself...

Grin Grin Grin

Well if some of these muslims read your posts, Equitist.

They would be lucky that ATHEISTS like you who are condemned as infidels anyway under the spotlight of Islam would feel lucky lucky to have such supporters like you who drop there IQ and reason to think there isnt a problem with Islam,

I'm sure when Italians came here over 99% of the population was concerned about them. In fact if I remember correctly there was mass mob violence against them and some were lynched...

Thank God some of our fellow Aussies have actually become educated and woken up to the ignorance our forefathers were steeped in, and it's only 60% now with the latest demonised arrivals.

But you're always going to get some ignorant hicks who can't drag themselves out of it I guess, sad but true.

This is more a damning indictment of how gullible and brainwashed some of us are. The fact 27% actually believe politicians have a genuine concern for the country, rather than just for their own political hide, is evidence enough.

So you got nothing but lies to support your statement, about what I expected .

You do realise you look like an ignorant racist with those statements, don't you, porky?

Keep up the good work, you're a intellectual giant among your people.  Grin

lol, me stupid? Coming from you, I'll take that as a compliment.

Anyways, perhaps I can educate you...you ignorant migrant. hehe

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Italianism

"In Australia, anti-Italian riots occurred on numerous occasions since Italian immigrants, or "wogs" (an English derogatory term for foreigners, not slang so much as an archaism, once often applied in Australia to Southern Europeans), first began arriving to the country in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many Australians viewed the Italian immigrants as "immoral", "low", and "dirty".[15]"

What was that about lying? Though I'm not surprised, that an migrant such as yourself doesn't know much about Australian history.

More reason why you should p(ss off back to where you came from.
