The question any reasonable person might ask after reading the results of a poll questioning support for President Donald Trump’s travel ban is who the hell could be opposed to greater public safety.
Muslims would in general be opposed to the travel ban, but it’s mind-boggling to think of white people or even black people being opposed.
The social justice warrior virtue-signaling rot runs pretty wide in America. The self-loathing, perhaps mentally disturbed libtard, is as bad as the cockroach and just as hard to get rid of.
While the majority may be for the ban, the nays are a pretty sizable minority. Support should be at the 90 percent level.
A clear majority of voters support President Donald Trump’s travel ban on visitors from six predominantly Muslim countries, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.
Polling on the travel restrictions has varied wildly since the Trump administrationunveiled the first executive order on travel in late January. But after months of litigation and controversy, 6-in-10 voters back the ban — and the survey suggests the actual policy may be more popular when separated from the president.
Asked whether they support or oppose 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 respondents said they support the guidelines, and only 28 percent oppose them.
The POLITICO/Morning Consult question doesn’t mention Trump, nor does it refer to the president’s executive orders on immigration. That contrasts with other polls, which mostly show greater opposition to the policy. An Associated Press-NORC Center poll last month showed a 57 percent majority of Americans thought courts were acting rightly in blocking the travel ban. That was conducted before the Supreme Court’s per curiam decision last week to let some elements of the ban go into effect while the high court waits to hear the case in the fall.
Republicans overwhelmingly back the restrictions, the poll shows. Eighty-four percent of GOP respondents support the ban, while 9 percent oppose it. But the policy is also popular among independent respondents: 56 percent support it, compared with 30 percent who oppose it. Democrats tilt slightly against the ban, with 41 percent supporting it, and 46 percent in opposition.
The wording of the poll question in the new survey differs from that in a March poll, after Trump signed a revised executive order in an effort to comply with lower-court rulings against the initial ban. In March, respondents were asked whether they “approve or disapprove of a revised executive order that prohibits persons from six predominantly Muslim countries without visas from entering the United States for 90 days and halting the processing of refugees for 120 days.” Then, 56 percent of voters approved of the order, and 33 percent disapproved.
Keep the jihadist out! Keep the jihadist sympathesizers out too.
While we’re at it, we might as well keep virually all Muslims out of the U.S., or rename ourselves Amurkistan.
