Cat People Like Government Least

A majority of Icelandic homes do not have any pets, according to a new MMR poll. Of the 1,001 people asked, 61 percent said they have no pets.

Dogs and cats are the most common pets in Iceland. A total of 20 percent of respondents said they have one or more dogs at home, and 18 percent said they are cat owners.

According to Vísir, the pollsters then went on to ask pet owners how they feel about the government.

Those who support the government were more likely to live in a home with dogs, or 28 percent, than those who do not support the government, at 17 percent.

On the other hand, those who do not support the government are more likely to live in a home with cats, 19 percent, than those who do support the government, at 13 percent.

People who identified in the poll as supporters of the Progressive Party had more traditional views on pets than supporters of other parties. Not a single Progressive Party supporter polled lived in a house with any pets other than cats or dogs.

The poll of 1,001 people was conducted on April 16-21.
