Public Supports Trump Immigration Action

PJ Media links to a quite recent Rasmussen poll on public attitudes toward Trump's curtailment of immigration from terror-prone nations selected by the Obama administration. Rasmussen writes:
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.

Most voters opposed former President Obama’s plan to bring tens of thousands of Middle Eastern and African refugees here this year. Sixty-two percent (62%) said Obama’s plan posed an increased national security risk to the United States.
Meanwhile the Democrats and their fellow-travelers in the old media are having yet another hissy fit.

Later ... Quinnipiac University - a well-known polling operation - finds the same thing.
American voters support 48 - 42 percent "suspending immigration from 'terror prone' regions, even if it means turning away refugees from those regions.
A majority of the people side with Trump.
