Attitudes toward immigration among French citizens are less pronounced than their feelings about Muslim refugees with just over 26% agreeing that France would be stronger if all immigration is stopped.
The attitudes of French citizens with the highest PPS toward immigration, however, are clear: they are more likely to agree (35% strongly agree) that France would be stronger if all immigration stopped. By contrast, more than 50% of French citizens with the lowest PPS strongly disagree with this statement.
Those with the highest SSMP are also more likely to agree that France would be stronger if all immigration stopped, but the contrast between the atttitudes of lowest and highest French citizens on the SSMP scale toward immigration is less pronounced than that produced by the PPS score.
In a model including PPS, SSMP, ideology, and a wide range of demographic variables, attitudes about immigration, estimated by PPS, remains statistically and substantively significant.
