The ridiculous amount of media coverage the protesters are getting, the public may be fooled into thinking most of the country is angry about Trump’s ban.
Well, someone decided to take a poll to depict the TRUE feelings the country has for the ‘ban.’
This paints a VERY different picture than what the media is trying to portray!
VIA| President Trump has taken a lot of heat in the media over his “extreme vetting” executive order. Protesters have been posted at airports around the country and had near-saturation coverage in the media.
But while American TVs and news websites are filled with photos of screaming protesters, the majority of America isn’t screaming and isn’t holding up any protest sign.
In fact, Rasmussen polls reports that most of them agree with President Trump.
The poll released Monday shows that 57% of Americans agree with Trump’s handling of the vetting issue:
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters favor a temporary ban on refugees from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen until the federal government approves its ability to screen out potential terrorists form coming here. Thirty-three percent (33%) are opposed, while 10% are undecided.
In all, 57% of Americans said yes to this question:
Do you favor or oppose a temporary ban on refugees from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen until the federal government improves its ability to screen out potential terrorists from coming here?
Rasmussen asked a second question about a temporary block on visas which got a similar thumbs up from voters:
Do you favor or oppose a temporary block on visas prohibiting residents of Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from entering the United States until the federal government improves its ability to screen out potential terrorists from coming here?
Thirty-two percent opposed a temporary ban and 11% were undecided. The margin of error for the poll is +/-3%.
The survey was taken late last week before airport protests started, but the numbers closely mirror Rasmussen’s last survey in August, when 59% of Americans felt the same way.
Social media blew up on all sides of the issue.
