Will Trump’s Refugee Ban Have Public Support?

Donald Trump signed a wide-ranging executive order on Friday that resets the United States’ immigration and refugee programs. …

The scope of Trump’s executive order is such that we’re largely in uncharted waters. Past polls are only so useful, as most of them did not ask about actions as broad as the ones Trump undertook. This isn’t like same-sex marriage, or other more straightforward yes-no issues that have been polled for years. I’d be suspect of anyone claiming it’s clear which way public support will go on Trump’s actions — at least until we get more polling. CONT.
