    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s argument that immigrants take away jobs of home populations is widely supported around the world, the Ipsos market research company announced in a press release.

    "A strong plurality of global citizens (41 percent) believes that immigrants take jobs away from their countrymen," the release stated on Wednesday.

    The online survey covered more than 18,000 people in 25 countries aged from 16 or 18 to 64, Ipsos noted.

    "Additionally, a near majority of global citizens (49 percent) understand that immigrants also take away social services," the survey also found.

    Ipsos said 49 percent of Americans believe that immigrants take jobs away while 61 percent believed they took unfair and disproportionate advantage of US social services, the survey found.

    Ipsos is an independent global market research company that was founded in France in 1975.
