Fifty-five percent of Swedes want the country to take in fewer refugees, according to a recent poll in daily Dagens Nyheter.

The number is up 25 percentage points since September this year, when barely one in three people answered that they wanted Sweden to take in fewer refugees.

In September, almost every other Swede, or 44 percent, wanted to take in more refugees, that figure has since been more than halved, and is now at 19 percent.

"It's actually quite surprising that almost one in five still would want to take in more refugees, despite that we have seen an unprecedented number of maybe 170,000 refugees coming here this year. If you think of if that way, these figures may not be so negative," says Nicklas Källebring, analyst at the polling institute Ipsos.

A total number of 1,231 people were interviewed in the survey.
