A new study found that the majority of people in France have unfavorable views about the country’s security situation, with six in ten people saying they no longer feel safe anywhere in the country.
The IFOP-FIDUCIAL poll concluded that 93 percent of French people surveyed believe the threat of more terror attacks is high, and 71 percent feel the security situation in France has gotten worse over the last five years.
59 percent of those surveyed said they didn’t feel safe anywhere and 24 percent opted to “strongly agree” with that statement.
The survey found that 69 percent think the police and gendarmerie are understaffed, but the majority of people have a positive view of law enforcement.
88 percent of respondents believe France should deport foreigners that were sentenced to prison for serious offense.
BreitBart reported: “A national state of emergency has been in force in France since Paris suffered one of the worst terror attacks in recent European history in November 2015, when 130 were killed in a series of bombings and shootings across the city.
And in June the following year, a Tunisian migrant deliberately drove a 19-tonne cargo truck into crowds celebrating Bastille Day on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, in an attack which resulted in the deaths of 86 people.”
According to the poll, France’s security is a major issue in this year’s presidential elections, but Marine Le Pen was judged the candidate with the best policies in keeping property and people safe (32 percent_ and in the fight against terror (35 percent).
