Migrant ‘savagery’ is a popular notion in France
Asked about the use of the term “savagery” to describe the rise of migrant-related insecurity in France, the French seemed to be rather in favor.

The expression ensauvagement is supposed to be “controversial” but when just over a thousand people responded in a survey carried out by Ifop for AVOSTART, the opposite was found to be true.
The expression has been used in recent days by some personalities to designate the rise in migrant violence and delinquency in France. For 70 percent of French people, the term is justified. Only 9 percent found it quite “excessive”.
Unsurprisingly, 8 out of 10 voters of LREM (85 percent) agreed, The Republicans (85 percent) and National Rally (83 percent). Only the voters of La France insoumise were more divided on the issue with only 47 percent agreeing.
In terms of religion, 77 percent of Catholics agreed with the term. And while men and women agreed on the issue, people aged 65 and over were more inclined to use the word “savages” for migrants.
LREM supporters demanded even more firmness (88 percent) just behind those of the National Rally (90 percent). On the other hand, only one in two Muslims found the government’s response “firm enough” or “to the right extent”.
Overall, seven in ten French people are dissatisfied with the left-leaning and lax Ministry of Justice with 73 percent of negative opinions registered. Moreover, nearly three quarters of those questioned call for more severe measures against unruly immigrants.
