The Supreme Court has temporarily allowed President Trump’s newest travel ban against people from six majority-Muslim nations to go into effect, but with strict limitations, and they still intend to hear arguments on the ban in October. Trump claims the ban will keep the country safe, but voters are not sure they agree.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 39% of Likely U.S. Voters think Trump’s plan to temporarily bar entry to the United States for people from Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen will make the United States safer. Just 19% think it will make this country less safe, but another 37% think the ban will have no impact on safety. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on July 2-3, 2017 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
