Germans consider "the environment, climate and energy" the most important issue facing the country at the moment, according to a EU poll. 36 percent of respondents named it as one of the two most important issues, followed by housing (30 percent) and immigration (24 percent).
When asked about the most important issues facing the EU in the semi-annual survey, respondents in Germany ranked immigration (37 percent) higher than climate change (31 percent). On average, EU citizens also named immigration (34 percent) more often among the bloc’s top priorities than climate change, "which comes in second position with a six-point increase (22%), following its five-point increase between spring and autumn 2018. It is the first time that this item is mentioned by more than a fifth of Europeans," the EU said.
