ComRes surveyed 7,092 adults online in seven countries between 7th September – 20th September (Great Britain, 1010; France, 1006; Germany, 1012; Poland, 1020; Hungary, 1019; Sweden 1018; Austria, 1007). Data were weighted to be representative of each country based on age, gender and region.

Over a third of adults (36%) say they are not favourable towards Muslims in their country, compared with one in ten (10%) who say they are unfavourable towards Jews
Three in ten (28%) adults say Jewish people have too much influence in finance and business across the world, compared with other people
One in five (20%) adults say Jewish people have too much influence in media across the world compared to other people
More than two in five (44%) agree anti-Semitism is a growing problem in their country today
Two in five (40%) adults agree Jewish people are at risk of racist violence in their country
Over half (54%) of adults agree Israel has a right to exist as a Jewish state
One third (32%) of adults agree criticism of Israel tends to be motivated by anti-Semitism
Three in ten (31%) adults agree Jewish people use the Holocaust to advance their position or to achieve certain goals
Over half (56%) of adults say they are not aware of ever having socialised with a Jewish person
