An opinion poll announced last night shows that the #refugee strategy of #Croatia government has been a winning one. 65.9% of respondents support the government refugee policy whereas 20.2% are against it. What is interesting is that among the supporters are more than 37% of the voters of the opposition conservative HDZ party, according to the opinion poll of RTL television. Two thirds of respondents support a humane and open approach to the refugees while only a quarter of Croats accept the position of HDZ and President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic for strong border control with the participation of the army. 14% are in favour of building a fence. In case Germany and Austria close their borders 43.5% responded that they would accept a certain number of refugees and the rest should be returned to the country they came from. 31% believe that in such a case Croatia should close its border with Serbia and even build a fence. 12% would accept several thousands of refugees but with financial assistance from the EU
