Half of all U.S. voters said they support Donald Trump’s controversial proposal to temporarily ban all Muslims from entering the U.S., a shocking new poll released Monday found.

Exactly 50% of respondents to a new survey by Morning Consult said they supported such a ban, while 38% said they opposed it and 11% said they had no opinion.


While the results of the poll, taken March 24-26, break down mostly along party lines, the difference in support levels among Democrats and Republicans isn’t radical.

About 71% of all Republicans polled said they supported a ban, while only 20% said they opposed it and 8% said they didn’t know.

But among Democrats surveyed, 34% said they supported a ban, while 56% said they opposed it and 10% said they didn’t know.

About half (49%) of self-identified independents said they would support a ban, while 36% said they would oppose it and 16% said they didn’t know.

The travel ban, which Trump proposed in December following the shootings in San Bernardino, Calif., was most popular among the real estate mogul’s backers, with 84% of them supporting it.

But nearly two-thirds (65%) of Ted Cruz supporters and 48% of John Kasich backers also said they supported such a ban.

The poll also found that a simple majority of American voters (49%) agreed with Cruz’s calls for additional law enforcement patrols of Muslim neighborhoods in the U.S.


Another 36% of respondents said they opposed such measures, while 14% said they didn’t know.

Among Republicans, 70% of those polled said they supported the proposed increased patrols, compared with 20% who opposed them and 10% who didn’t know.

Among Democrats, 35% said they supported the measures, 52% said they opposed them and 13% said they didn’t know.

Banning Muslims from the country is far more logical than Cruz's idea. Cruz really is a complete ****. What are those patrols going to be equipped with? Extremism detectors? The only way Islamism is going to end is if there is a change within their own community. Cruz's idea will just intimidate Muslims and make them feel they need to defend themselves. Banning Muslims is a pretty OTT idea but at least it would stop Muslim citizens going off to fight with IS and then coming back into the country. How you would be able to assess whether people coming into the country for the first time are Muslim or not is a far more difficult question though. If you could do it though, it would make the USA safer, and that's the truth of it. It's a bugger for those 99% of Muslims who aren't terrorists, but it would help to prevent attacks.

This proves that Islamophobia is rife in the world. All over the world in China, USA, Russia, India, Israel, Europe, Burma, DRC, Indonesia, South America we have Christians, Jews, Hindus, Bhuddists and atheists attacking Muslims and Islam. It just shows how much evil there is in the world

They wouldn't get shut down if Trump didn't use such divisive language, and blatantly racist policies

Anyway, his supporters are more violent than the protesters

Exactly. And you never hear about it in the western media, which focuses only on the negatives of one religion, and one religion only, Islam, and acts as though the others can do no wrong

Get real.😆

Joey Salads did a social experiment where he held up a Trump sign and then held up a Bernie sign.
Go on, have a guess which sign got him assaulted by the opposite supporter.

The US is the most paranoid country on the planet with good reason. They have created more enemies than friends with their egocentric notions of world domination. NWO. This notion of banning Muslims is just a symptom of their paranoia.

I'm pretty sure it would be the same in the UK, and above 70% in France.

Really? 70% in France? I don't think French people were at that state...?
Even in America, its nowhere near 70% with "half of Trump supporters"...

We are reaching 10% of Muslims... My lifelong socialist parents would happily vote for such a ban, so you can guess that it would be almost universal among right wingers. Hollande had a sudden rush of popularity in November when he ordered to close some radical mosques.
People hate Muslims in France; in comparison, I'm surprised at how tolerant the UK is towards Muslims.

Trump supporters seem to hate muslims, Mexicans and the like, Sanders supporters hate intolerance, racism, sexism etc..Consider the muslim woman with a headscarf who wore the peace shirt in a Trump rally and got kicked out, they clearly hate those certain people rather than the ones supporting them, it's a matter of skin colour.
