A new poll shows 6.2 million Mexicans would like to move permanently to the United States if they could

Gallup compiled a list of the top 10 countries by highest projected population of potential migrants who say they would like to move to the United States. That list also includes: China (22.9 million), India (17.1 million), Nigeria (16.6 million), Ethiopia (9.2 million), Bangladesh (7.8 million), Brazil (7.7 million), Philippines (5.8 million), Vietnam (5 million), and Japanese (3.3 million). Gallup concluded that if all adults worldwide who said they would like to move to another country actually did so, the United States could see a net population gain of 60%. On the other hand, Mexico could see net population losses as high as 15%.
