Interesting survey developed by the Pew Research Center among 56 thousand people from all over Europe that breaks some myths about the degree of chauvinism in each country. It gives us a map of the countries that are probably at higher risk of their government ending up dominated for a party of populist – xenophobic and in which Spain goes quite well stopped.
To the question of whether the citizens of a country consider their culture superior to that of other countries Europe seems divided into three sociocultural realities. A Western Europe where the feeling of cultural superiority is relatively low, Spain takes the palm with only 20% of respondents answering the question affirmatively (it is surprising that in our neighboring country the affirmative responses rise to 47% in Portugal ).
A central Europe where cultural superiority moves at rates of 50% and an Eastern Europe where cultural chauvinism seems installed in the majority of the population with Greece leading the ranking with 89% of Greeks considering themselves a superior culture, followed by Georgia , Armenia, Russia and Bulgaria.
The survey has other interesting derivatives that show a high correlation with the answer to the previous question. So to the question of whether you would accept someone Jewish or Muslim in your family, again the countries of Eastern Europe seem to be clearly the most intransigent. Only 7% of Armenians would accept that a new member of their family was Muslim and only 33% and 35% of Greeks would accept a Muslim or a Jew in their family.
Spain, leaves again well stopped, in the best positions in the ranking as acceptance. 74% of Spaniards would accept that a new member of their family was Muslim and 79% that they were Jewish.
Similar results throw the question of the degree of opposition to same-sex marriages. In Spain only 13% of its citizens are opposed to same-sex marriages. On the opposite side we have Russia, with a degree of opposition of 90% to marriages celebrated between people of the same sex.
