Slightly more than half of Americans support President Donald Trump’s travel ban, an IBD/TIPP poll reveals.
Here are the poll highlights:
- Fifty-one percent support his executive order to temporarily block those from seven countries from entering the U.S., compared to 48 percent who do not.
- Eighty-eight percent of Republicans approve of the order, while 82 percent of Democrats oppose it. Fifty-five percent of independents back Trump.
- Fifty percent say the nation is headed in the right direction, compared to 40 percent who felt that way before the election.
- Fifty-five percent say the economy is improving, compared to 49 percent who thought so right before the election.
“The poll also shows widespread confidence that Trump will make good on his key promises of bringing back manufacturing jobs (64 percent are confident he’ll do this), building the border wall (58 percent), repealing and replacing Obamacare (67 percent) and cutting and simplifying taxes (53 percent). Confidence in Trump’s ability to defeat ISIS was split, 49 percent to 48 percent,” Investor’s Business Daily reports.
