#AMERICANS support #Trump’s#MUSLIM BAN ! #TrumpTrain #VoteTrump
When Donald Trump originally proposed a temporary ban on Muslims entering the country, polling showed that nearly six-in-ten Americans were opposed to the idea. Since that time, public opinion has gradually shifted to the extent that the number of Americans in favor of the proposition now consistently exceeds the number of those opposed to it.
Daily Caller “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on,” said a statement from the Trump campaign on December 7, 2015.
Three days later, the Wall Street Journal released a poll that found 57 percent of Americans objected to the proposed Muslim ban. Just 25 percent of those polled supported Trump’s plan at the time. CBS released similar polling results the next day. In the CBS poll, 58 percent of Americans opposed a temporary ban on Muslim immigration and 36 percent supported it.
6/22 DAILY CALLER POLL: Do you support a temporary ban on Muslim Immigration?
One December poll from YouGov found different results than the WSJ and CBS polls. The YouGov poll showed 45 percent of Americans supported a Muslim ban, with 41 percent in opposition to it.
The next polling of Americans generally (rather than just Republican primary voters) on the issue came out in late March. That poll was conducted following the Islamic terror attack in Brussels that left 35 people dead.
YouGov polled Americans again on the Muslim ban and, by that time, support for the ban had increased to 51 percent and opposition to it had dropped to 40 percent.
Another March poll — this time from Morning Consult — showed 50 percent of Americans supported temporarily banning Muslims from entering the U.S. Thirty-eight percent of respondents were against the idea.
Reuters has kept a rolling poll on the subject since May. On May 31, Reuters found that 54.5 percent of Americans disagreed with the Muslim ban and 40.7 percent supported it. By June 6, the same poll found that 52 percent of Americans supported the ban, while 44 percent opposed it.
The Reuters poll has remained steady after the Orlando terror attack. On June 14, fifty percent of likely voters supported a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States, while 42 percent opposed it.
AMorning Consult poll released Wednesday had 48 percent of Americans supporting a Muslim ban and 40 percent against the proposal.
As Americans have shifted their views over time, so too has Trump. “When I am elected, I will suspend immigration from areas of the world when there is a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe or our allies, until we understand how to end these threats,” the presumptive Republican nominee said in a speech June 13.
The most recent Morning Consult poll found a majority of Americans support temporarily banning immigration from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia.
“I am Mexican and I am Muslim and I am Trump’s biggest nightmare,” said 11-year-old vlogger Andrew. (Sorry cupcake, you are not his biggest nightmare, you are an insignificant cocky little diaperhead)
TeleSurTV The fifth-grader from Texas says he feels like there are two strikes against him as a Muslim of Mexican heritage who lives in the United States.
Andrew first started his Facebook page with the help of his mother, Nahela Morales, when he was just seven years old. It started off as a way for Andrew to keep in touch with his friends back in Mexico, but now, as Andrew has become an expert at making and uploading videos himself, the 11 year old posts messages advocating for racial and religious tolerance and responding to xenophobic and racist comments in the news.
When Andrew heard about Trump’s plans to build a wall between Mexico and the U.S., he got angry. “I did not agree with any of the words he said, not one bit. He is negative and nasty,” Andrew said. “I like everything Bernie Sanders says, I like the way he he gets on his hands and knees and submits to Muslims.”

Dozens of “screaming” bystanders fled the complex with reports of between 20 and 50 injured, though the exact number of casualties has not yet been confirmed.
Police later said those injured were affected by teargas and were being treated by local medics. The shooter’s motive remains unclear, with speculation it was a botched robbery or terror attack.
