49pct of Australians want Muslim immigration banned

A new poll in Australia shows a staggering number of people there want a ban on Muslim immigration.

The poll, released on Wednesday, found 49 percent of Australians support a ban on Muslim immigration.

The most common reasons for wanting a ban were fears over terrorism, and a belief that Muslim migrants do not integrate into society nor share Australian values.

The poll was first conducted in early August and then repeated to ensure it was not a rogue.

Australia correspondent Jason Morrison joined Paul Henry this morning.
