An online poll by Ipsos, for World Animal Protection, found that 19% of adults in Spain aged 16-65 said they supported bullfighting, compared to 58% who opposed it.
1 in 4 say that they are very or fairly proud to be living in a country where bullfighting is a cultural tradition compared to 2 in 3 who are not very or not at all proud. 1 in 10 agree (strongly or tend to) that public funds should be used to assist the bullfighting industry, while 6 in 10 strongly disagree with this.
The study was conducted online by Ipsos, on behalf of World Animal Protection from 11th – 14th December 2015 with a quota sample of 1,059 adults aged 16-65 in Spain. Interviews were carried out on Ipsos’s online i:Omnibus service using a quota sample of adults. Quotas were set and data weighted according to the known offline profile for age, gender, region and working status.
Of those adults interviewed, 134 were aged 16-24, 202 aged 25-34, 278 aged 35-44, 243 aged 45-54 and 202 aged 55-65.
