Poll indicates most people agree with Trump
A reader pointed me to this poll (conducted using an automated response system and by dialing home phones [no mobile phones]) which shows that the majority of Americans (52%) agree with Donald Trump’s call for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on” and that 71% of Republicans agree.
If this is true, instead of being the death knell for Trump’s campaign that the liberal media and their allies in the Republican establishment are praying for, it will actually increase his support.

Also a new Bloomberg poll (linked to by Drudge) shows the same thing. 65% of likely Republican primary voters support Trump’s temporary ban on Muslims entering the country.

Also, this question is interesting. “Do you think the peaceful followers of Islam have done enough to denounce the violent followers of Islam? Or should the peaceful followers be doing more?’
85% of all Americans (not just Republicans) say “Should Do More.” And I personally strongly feel this way. It seems to me that Muslims only pay lip service to this concept when a spokesperson (carefully chosen by the mainstream media) is being interviewed by television cameras. Then, when the cameras leave, they go back to business as usual.
This is one of the reasons I am glad that Trump is making this a topic of conversation. I think the opposite of what liberals predict (this creates more “radicalized” Muslims) will happen; non-radicalized Muslims will be shamed into doing more to discourage radicalization.
