A survey suggests many Swedes support a proposal to cut money and leave to stay for refugees.

Of those who responded to the poll 43 percent say the idea is good, or very good; against 30 percent who say it is bad, or very bad.

And 27 percent poll as being undecided.

The Christian Democrats have proposed giving refugees temporary, not permanent, leave to stay. And to allow permanent residence after a probationary period of three years. Refugees would also get less financial support.

Christian Democrat leader Göran Hägglund says this proposal would make living up to international asylum laws cheaper, as more refugees would start working.

He also hopes the changes would encourage people to exercise their right to asylum in other European countries.

The Migration Board, already vastly overworked, says this double-application process would greatly increase its workload.

The Sifo survey was commissioned by Svenska Dagbladet.
