NBC/WSJ Poll: Majority of Americans Oppose Trump Anti-Muslim Plan

Thursday, 10 December 2015 06:42 PM

A majority of Americans oppose Donald Trump's controversial plan to ban Muslims from entering the United States, but one in four supports it, according to an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, the the first major national poll since the furor erupted.

The front-runner for the Republican nomination for the White House triggered an outcry on Monday with the proposal, which was lambasted at home and abroad.

Here's a breakdown of the overall results of the poll, released Thursday:

  • 57 percent oppose Trump's plan
  • 25 percent support it
  • 18 percent don't know or have no opnion

Among Republicans the views are mixed: 42 percent of Republican respondents back Trump's Muslim ban, while 36 percent oppose it.

Three-quarters of Democrats stand opposed.

The poll also found that 41 percent of Americans believe Trump's bombastic campaign statements in general are frequently insulting.

Twenty-two percent say Trump is telling it like it is and has the correct approach.

The survey also showed that Americans have a favorable opinion of Muslims — 59 percent positive compared to 29 percent negative — upholding a relatively stable position on the question since 2002.
