Majority of Danes want tougher border controls
Quote:A majority of residents supports the implementation of permanent border controls and the Danish People's Party has vowed to give the people want they want – even if it means violating the Schengen Agreement.

When voter support for the Danish People’s Party (DF) reached an historic high in November, it sent shock waves through the Danish political system.

But recent opinion polls on two key DF positions indicate that the party is more in tune with Danish voters than the political establishment might believe.

A poll from last week indicated that every second Dane thinks there should be a limit to how many Muslims live in Denmark, a standpoint right in DF’s wheelhouse.

On Monday, a new poll revealed that voters overwhelmingly agree with another key DF issue: increased border controls.

An Epinion poll conducted for public broadcaster DR showed that 61 percent of Danes are either completely or partially in agreement that Denmark should institute permanent controls at its borders, including border gates and guards.
