Poll: Majority Support Trump’s Temporary Ban

Um, oops?

From Rasmussen

Most voters approve of President Trump’s temporary halt to refugees and visitors from several Middle Eastern and African countries until the government can do a better job of keeping out individuals who are terrorist threats.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters favor a temporary ban on refugees from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen until the federal government approves its ability to screen out potential terrorists from coming here. Thirty-three percent (33%) are opposed, while 10% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Similarly, 56% favor a temporary block on visas prohibiting residents of Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from entering the United States until the government approves its ability to screen for likely terrorists. Thirty-two percent (32%) oppose this temporary ban, and 11% are undecided. (snip)

The refugee ban is supported by 82% of Republicans and 59% of voters not affiliated with either major party. Democrats are opposed by a 53% to 34% margin. The numbers are nearly identical for the temporary ban on visas from these seven terrorist-plagued nations.

Perhaps those who approve of it would be willing to take the rapeugees, er, refugees, into their own homes and neighborhoods? They should talk to people in Europe for guidance first.

Along these same lines, the NY Times provides the names of companies who are putting these refugees, who probably do not even speak the language, over US citizens. The biggest among them making a splash is Starbucks, which has stated it will hire 10,000 refugees. I have a couple questions

  1. How many of the 18,000 already let in by Obama have they hired?
  2. If they haven’t hired any, why not?
  3. Why didn’t the NY Times ask Starbucks how many they hired?
  4. Will Starbucks make sure no pork products are served?
  5. Will Starbucks stop dogs from coming in stores?
  6. Will Starbucks require women, both employees and customers, to cover up so as not to incite being sexually assaulted, as they’ve been told in Europe?

Tech companies are big on being opposed to the temporary ban, because they love displacing their citizen workers and hiring foreigners at lower salaries. Of course, they tend to hire people who can speak the language and understand the tech, not those who can put bombs together.

Media and Telcom are rather neutral. It’s retail that’s more vocal. Nike, Coca Cola, Walmart, Target, and Proctor and Gamble are all mentioned. How many have hired the refugees? Or, do they prefer to be all talk and no actiom?

Among the automakers, Ford took the most outspoken stance, coming out against the executive order. Ford has its headquarters in Dearborn, Mich., a suburb of Detroit that has a large Muslim population.

In a joint statement, William Clay Ford Jr., Ford’s executive chairman, and Mark Fields, the company’s chief executive, said: “Respect for all people is a core value of Ford Motor Company, and we are proud of the rich diversity of our company here at home and around the world. That is why we do not support this policy or any other that goes against our values as a company.”

General Motors said it would support its employees who might be affected. Fiat Chrysler said it had no comment.

If they’re here, they aren’t affected. If they’re from those areas, why were they hired over Americans? Was GM and Ford planning on importing refugees with no skills and whom do not speak English to build cars? Does Ford respect women? How about the LGBT community? Because the refugees sure don’t, as we’ve seen from the things going on in Europe.

    Teach: Rapeugees? donald trump has raped more American women than all the refugees have.

    Did you apologize yet for spreading disinformation about the Quebec mosque shooting? It was a right-wing, white nationalist trump supporter who murdered 6 innocent worshipers.

  2. Jeffery says:

    Well, it was Rasmussen… they might as well have asked “Do you support trump ‘Keeping American Safe?'”

    trumpy’s outrageous, cruel and thoughtless Friday night EO had one and only one purpose, to solidify his support among anti-Muslim bigots. It made America less safe.

  3. Jeffery says:

    The Hugo Chavez Putin trumpy administration says,

    The acting Attorney General, Sally Yates, has betrayed the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States. This order was approved as to form and legality by the Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel.

    Ms. Yates is an Obama Administration appointee who is weak on borders and very weak on illegal immigration.

    Fire then personally attack. How mature.

    Jeffery, is this guy a “right-wing, white nationalist trump supporter”? This is the guy who’s side you’re on. His name is Abu Sayyaf.


  5. drowningpuppies says:

    Well, little guy is certainly showing his faux outrage this morning against America.
    It’s only week two and the silly little loser will have 8 years to spout his hatred and misinformation.
    Pace yourself, loser.

  6. Dana says:

    Jeffrey, you’re supposed to be the boss of a corporation. If one of your subordinates said no, he wasn’t going to follow instructions, would you keep him on the job and allow him to continue his disobedience?

      Jeffrey, you’re supposed to be the boss of a corporation.

      Yeah, and little guy supposedly joined the Army too…

    When you do a street blocking protest in Portland & bystanders cheer as cops beat you, it’s time to rethink strategy

    Jeffery, would you please take in this poor refugee? He’s what you guys want to bring into our country.


  9. AndyG55 says:

    ” donald trump has raped more American women ”

    DISGUSTING LIES, its all you have.

    Brilliant EO, hold back immigrants from radical islamist countries until you can verify they are not terrorists.

    Waiting for jeffles to invite them share his granny’s inner city basement.

    What’s really worrying you jeffles, is the blocking of the Mexican border, putting up the cost of your hourly drug supply.

  10. Jeffery says:

    trump had every right to fire Yates. Then, pathetic tiny dick that he is, he belittled her. He has no class, none at all.

  11. Jeffery says:

    This EO had nothing to do terrorists, national security or safety. It was trumpy showing his worshipers how “tough” he was. He is not.

    His policy harmed, not helped America. ISIS is rejoicing, just as al qaeda rejoiced with Bush’s invasion.

    ISIS wants Americans to express their bigotry for the whole world to see, as it confirms their own propaganda.
