Majority favors Trump’s proposed ban, support grows when Trump’s name removed

Donald_Trump_Signs_The_Pledge_25On Friday, Fox News reported that 50 percent of voters now favor Donald Trump’s proposed moratorium on Muslim immigration, while 46 percent are opposed.

Even more interesting is that support for the proposal increases by five points when Trump’s name is taken off the question.  Opposition to the idea also drops by six points.

Fox News reported:

There are stunning shifts in the responses among Democrats: 45 percent favor banning Muslims if Trump’s name is not mentioned, yet when the plan is identified as Trump’s, support drops to 25 percent.

Among Republicans, views hold steady: 71 percent favor it when attributed to Trump vs. 72 percent for the generic proposal.

It will be interesting to see how this is played by the mainstream media.

Perhaps they’ll tell us that half or more of all voters are bigots…
