A new Donald Trump poll is split over the Muslim immigration ban being proposed by the GOP frontrunner. The debate has raged ever since Trump proposed the controversial plan, and apparently, almost half of Republicans support imposing the idea in order to combat terrorism in the United States. But the odd part is that the plan has some American Muslims and Nazis actually agreeing. The twist is that the leaders of the real American Nazi Party believe the Muslim ban is “improbable,” despite supporting the concept.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, some have compared former U.S President Jimmy Carter’s ban of Iranian immigrants to Trump’s ideas.
When Trump described the Muslim ban plan he essentially said that if Muslims profess Islam at the border, then they should not be allowed to enter as legal immigrants. As the Washington Post and NBC News polls show, the GOP poll split over the Muslim ban is fairly pronounced, but even 57 percent of all adult Americans disagree with Trump’s proposal, with only 25 of American thinking that Trump may have a good idea.
“But views are mixed among Republicans: 42 percent of GOP respondents support Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims from entering the U.S., while 36 percent oppose it,” the Trump poll notes. “And among Republican primary voters, it’s 38 percent support, 39 percent oppose. By comparison, 75 percent of Democrats and 55 percent of independents disagree with Trump’s proposal.”
The new poll is split over Muslim support, as well. The poll shows that 59 percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of Muslims, while 29 percent are negative. This opinion has not swayed much since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, since polling data from 2002 is similar.
Republicans tend to hold a more unfavorable view of Muslims, with only 43 percent of GOP members having a favorable view of Muslims. In comparison, 75 percent of Democrats find Muslims favorable, while only 14 percent find adherents of Islam to be unfavorable. Independents are closer to the national average, with the new poll split along a 59 percent favorable/25 percent unfavorable line.
The new Donald Trump poll is split over how his campaign has handled itself so far. About 41 percent believe that ” Trump’s general campaign statements are frequently insulting and have the wrong approach.”
“By contrast, 24 percent say that Trump’s manner and language might be problematic, but think he’s raising important issues. And 22 percent say that Trump is telling it like it is and has the right approach,” the report explained. “But among Republicans, only 16 percent find him insulting; 37 percent believe he’s raising important issues despite his language; and 40 percent say he’s telling it like it is.”
The new poll’s split over Muslim believers may be true statistically, but this disagreement has been shown to take odd shapes and forms. For example, even American Nazi Leader Rocky Suhayda doubts that Trump’s plan could ever be implemented.
“Unless Trump plans on ruling by Presidential Decree, I don’t see how he would implement any of his ‘plans,’ the rest of the sold out ‘mainstream’ political whores would block his every move,” Suhayda said. “I seriously doubt if he even believes all what he says, but it’s nice to have someone like him saying it.”
Of course, the real Nazis would like to see the plan passed, since they claim non-white minorities are “invading” America, but the split in support even has some Muslim leaders in America claiming that Trump’s idea is solid.
“I certainly see it to be wise [to] stop temporarily accepting any new Muslim immigrants (refugees and non-refugees) into the United States,” explained Texas imam Nidal Alsayyed. “We American Muslims need to be sincere in our religion and to the country we are living in. Peace comes before religion.”
