That includes not only Republicans & Democrats but also Independents. Via Politico

Sixty percent of American voters back President Donald Trump’s revised travel restrictions from the six designated countries, suggested a new poll released by POLITICO/Morning Consult (a non-partisan media company).

Voters were asked if 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.”

Sixty percent responded that they support the guidelines while 28 percent opposed. Last month, a poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center indicated that 57 percent opposed the temporary travel ban. The poll was conducted before the Supreme Court’s unanimous decision to allow part of the “travel pause” to be enacted.

The current poll indicates:

  • 84 percent of Republican voters support the revised ban versus nine percent who oppose it
  • 56 percent of independent voters support the revised ban versus 30 percent who oppose it
  • 41 percent of Democrats support the revised ban versus 46 who oppose it

The survey was conducted June 29-30 and polled 1,989 registered voters.
