"1.5 million Brits see themselves as supporters of ISIS"

From Mirror Online:


Muslim leader: 'ISIS-supporting Brits may be disenfranchised by Tory cuts'




Quotes:
Pollsters ICM found that opposition to IS has hardened during twelve months of barbaric atrocities, with 80% of British people now having a “very unfavourable” view of them compared with 45% last July.
But, staggeringly, the poll of 2,016 British adults taken over the weekend also found that support for the terror group was up by 2%, to 9%. 
... 
It found that 3% have a “very favourable view”, up 1% from a year ago – suggesting that around half of Britain's three million Muslims could be ISIS sympathisers. Another 6% admitted having a “somewhat favourable” view, up from five per cent last year.
