Slightly more than half of Americans support President Donald Trump's travel ban, an IBD/TIPP poll revealed.

Here are the poll highlights: 

  • 51 percent support his executive order to temporarily block those from seven countries from entering the U.S., compared to 48 percent who do not.
  • 88 percent of Republicans approve of the order, while 82 percent of Democrats oppose it, and 55 percent of independents back Trump.
  • 50 say the nation is headed in the right direction, compared to 40 percent who felt that way before the election.
  • 55 percent say the economy is improving, compared to 49 percent who thought so right before the election.

"The poll also shows widespread confidence that Trump will make good on his key promises of bringing back manufacturing jobs (64 percent are confident he'll do this), building the border wall (58 percent), repealing and replacing Obamacare (67 percent) and cutting and simplifying taxes (53 percent). Confidence in Trump's ability to defeat ISIS was split, 49 percent to 48 percent," Investor's Business Daily reported.

And Raghavan Mayur, president of TechnoMetrica and director of the IBD/TIPP poll said: "Americans see Trump moving on issues with a laser focus in lightning speed. He is taking actions on multiple fronts both domestic and foreign. This explains the confidence they have that Trump will fulfill his campaign promises, and he means business."

The rest of the poll breaks down like this:

  • 42 percent approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while 48 percent disapprove.
  • 42 percent say Obamacare should be repealed, 34 percent say it should be expanded, and 20 percent say it should be left as is.
  • 47 percent say trade deals have hurt job creation in the U.S., compared to 22 percent who say they have helped.
