New Poll Shows that Majority of Voters Actually Support One of Trump’s Most Controversial Decisions

A Politico/Morning Consult poll released Wednesday shows that a majority of voters support President Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban on several majority-Muslim nations.

Respondents of the poll were asked if they agreed with the State Department’s “new guidelines which say visa applicants from six predominately Muslim countries must prove a close family relationship with a U.S. resident in order to enter the country.”

60 percent of voters thought this was a reasonable policy to implement, while only 28 percent opposed it.

The poll showed significant divisions along partisan lines, though many Democrats do seem to support the new regulations.

Republican voters were most in favor of the travel ban, as 84 percent were in support of it, compared to just nine percent against.

A majority of independents also favored the travel restrictions, the poll showed, with 56 percent supporting the president’s guidelines and 30 percent saying they oppose them.

Though Democrats in Congress have vehemently opposed the ban since its inception, some left-leaning voters seem to be giving Trump more leeway.

Even though 46 percent of Democrats said they were against the ban, 41 percent said they supported it.

“Since we last asked about Trump’s travel ban, we’ve seen a drop in those who oppose the executive order,” said Morning Consult chief research officer and co-founder Kyle Dropp. “Though, we’ve also seen an uptick in those who do not have any opinion on the matter or have yet to settle on one.”

The Politico/Morning Consult poll, which was conducted from June 29-30, did not name President Trump when asking about respondent’s views on the ban.

Trump’s travel ban affects six countries that are predominantly Muslim: Libya, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Yemen and Somalia.

Travelers from these countries are permitted to enter the United States only if they have a “close family” member currently residing there.

Per the guidelines, close family includes parents, parents-in-law, spouses, children, adult sons or daughters, sons-in-law, daughters-in-law, siblings or half siblings.

Those excluded from entry are extended family members, such as grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousin, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.
