UPI: Poll: 14 percent of world's adults want to migrate

June 8 (UPI) -- Fourteen percent of the world's adults would permanently move to another country if they had the chance, a slight increase from the years immediately following the 2008 global financial crisis, a new poll shows.

In a rolling survey by Gallup from 2013-16, 14 percent of respondents, which equates to almost 710 million people, said they would like to move to another country.

From 2010-12, 13 percent of respondents said they would prefer to move, a figure that equates to 630 million people worldwide.

WNU Editor: Only 14%? If people in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, and much of Asia were told right now that they could migrate to the West .... I would put that number over 50%, if not more.

Knock off the top 1% or 5% because the system is rigged in their favor in more than a few countries.

So the 14% is actually higher than what it appears to be.

Other people would 'want' to migrate, but they do not know if it would work, so they do not express the desire to others or themselves. Conditions are not so onerous, when compared to the travails of dangerous travel and uncertain results.
