The Poll Numbers are In On Trump’s Muslim Ban And…

The liberal media has been slamming Donald Trump over his proposed ban on Muslims entering the United States, but do Americans agree? New poll numbers have come in, and the media hacks howling over the ban are not going to be happy.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump caused a stir last week when he called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States until the government can “figure out what is going on.”

How do voters feel about Trump’s proposal? Well, that depends.

A new Fox News poll finds 50 percent of voters favor Trump’s ban, while 46 percent are opposed.

However, when Trump’s name is removed from the question, support for the plan goes up five points and opposition goes down six: 55 percent favor the unnamed proposal, while 40 percent oppose it.

So while voters favor the “Trump” ban by a 4-point margin — that increases to 15 points when the same ban is not associated with Trump.

There are stunning shifts in the responses among Democrats: 45 percent favor banning Muslims if Trump’s name is not mentioned, yet when the plan is identified as Trump’s, support drops to 25 percent.

Among Republicans, views hold steady: 71 percent favor it when attributed to Trump vs. 72 percent for the generic proposal.

It’s amazing how different things are when you remove someone’s name from the argument. If only people would consider the ideas of a politician’s proposal instead of getting hung up on their name.
