Poll: 65 Percent Of GOP Likely Primary Voters Support Trump’s Plan To Block Islam

A new Purple Strategies ‘Pulse Poll’ shows that almost two-thirds of likely Republican primary voters support Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s conditional call to ban Muslims from entering into America, and more than a third say his plan makes them more likely to vote for Trump.

The online survey, conducted for Bloomberg, found that 65 percent of likely GOP voters support Trump’s plan. When the poll participants were told both sides of the argument, support remained almost unchanged at 64 percent.

The poll also found that 37 percent likely 2016 voters said they’re more likely to vote for Trump because of his decision to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the country.

Doug Usher, who runs the group that conducted the poll concluded that the poll, “indicates that, despite some conventional wisdom expressed in the last 48 hours, this is unlikely to hurt Trump, at least in the primary campaign.”

Trump’s proposal comes in the aftermath of the Paris jihad attacks that left over 120 people dead and the San Bernardino, California jihad attack, which killed 14 Americans.
