Of all the ways that migrants contribute to the U.S., the majority of Americans view “better food” as being the best benefit the country has received as a result of immigration, a recently released YouGov poll shows.
With immigration taking center stage as one of the most widely debated issues in the U.S. and abroad, YouGov conducted a study across the U.S. and in seven European nations to “find out exactly what citizens believe to be the impact of migrants on their country–for good and ill.” The study was conducted in November 2018 and published on Thursday.
In nearly all countries surveyed, including the U.S., Britain, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Germany, “better food” ranked as the greatest benefit countries had received from immigration, outweighing contributions to culture, local businesses and economies, local communities, music and sport.
In the U.S., 50 percent of people surveyed identified “better food” as the top benefit of immigration. Meanwhile, 43 percent said they believed local businesses and economies had benefited most from immigration, while 42 percent said U.S. culture had seen the most benefit.
