Exit polls in Michigan show 6 of 10 Republicans support temporary ban of Muslim immigration

trump-f-bombIt was one of the more controversial ideas put forward by GOP front-runner Donald Trump, and it seems to have significant backing by a number of Republicans in Michigan, a state with a large number of Muslims.  According to exit polls, 6 out of 10 Republicans in the state support a temporary moratorium on Muslim immigration, Breitbart.com said Tuesday.

Breitbart added:

The proposal — championed by Republican frontrunner Donald J. Trump — was even more popular in Mississippi, where 7 out of 10 Republicans favored a ban on Muslim travel. Those proportions match the range of responses among the states that voted a week ago on Tuesday, ranging from 64% (Virginia) to Alabama (78%).

The exit polls confirm recent public polling results, such as a WXYZ / Free Press poll that showed 61% support in Michigan for a ban on Muslims. Local Muslims in Michigan reacted with concern at the poll results.

Trump won Michigan’s primary Tuesday night, having secured over 36 percent of the vote.
