New Poll Finds Public Supports Restricting Travel From Majority-Muslim Countries

A new poll released Wednesday indicates that restricting migration from majority-Muslim countries is a lot more popular than the mainstream media would have us believe.

President Trump’s proposed travel ban was back in the news last week after the Supreme Court agreed to hear oral arguments on the controversial executive order. In the meantime, the court ruled that parts of the ban would stay in effect until it hands down a full decision, noting that the only exceptions would be for individuals with “bona fide” relationships with individuals or entities in the United States.

So, what do Americans think about the travel ban as it now stands? A new poll from Politico/Morning Consult, released Wednesday, indicates that it’s a lot more popular than the mainstream media would have us believe. Six in ten Americans support restricting inbound travel to the United States from majority-Muslim countries. More on that in a second, but first some context.
