Sixty percent of registered voters favor President Donald Trump's travel ban on visitors from six predominantly Muslim countries, while 28 percent oppose it, a new Politico/Morning Consult poll reveals.

Here is how the poll breaks down:

  • 84 percent of Republican voters back the restrictions, while only 9 percent oppose them.
  • 41 percent of Democrats favor the guidelines, compared to 46 percent who do not.
  • 56 percent of independents support the ban, while 30 percent are against it.

Voters were asked whether they support or oppose the State Department's "new guidelines which say visa applicants from six predominately Muslim countries must prove a close family relationship with a U.S. resident in order to enter the country," according to Politico.

"The Politico/Morning Consult question doesn't mention Trump, nor does it refer to the president's executive orders on immigration," Politico's Steven Shephard noted.

And he added: "Eighty percent of voters think travelers from those six countries should be admitted to the U.S. if they have a parent living in America, and 78 percent think they should be admitted to join a spouse or child in the country; all three are permitted under the directive."

The poll surveyed 1,989 registered voters from June 29-30. The margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.
