Most voters favor President Donald Trump's 90-day travel ban on people from seven countries with ties to terrorism, according to a Rasmussen poll released Monday.

Protests erupted in airports across the country over the weekend following Trump's executive order Friday instituting the ban on visitors from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen.

The poll of likely voters was taken the two days before Trump's order and before critics, even within the Republican Party, said it was made too hastily, catching people off guard who already were in transit.

The White House said giving early warning would have allowed potential terrorists to sneak in ahead of the ban.

According to the poll, 57 percent of respondents favor such a ban on refugees from the seven countries while the government improves its screening process. Thirty-three percent opposed a temporary ban, and 10 percent were undecided.

A similar 56 percent favored banning visas from those countries during the same time period. Thirty-two percent opposed, and 11 percent were undecided on the visa issue.

The numbers were close to the 59 percent who favored the ban in August.

The same Rasmussen poll found a slight majority (48 percent-46 percent) favored building a wall along the Mexican-U.S. border.

And a Quinnipiac poll issued Monday, but taken in early January, respondents favored a temporary ban from people from terror regions by 48 percent to 42 percent.

The Rasmussen poll talked to 1,000 likely voters Jan. 25-26. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
