Rasmussen: 82 Percent of Republicans, 54 Percent of Independents Back Trumpís Refugee Moratorium
Breitbart ^ | 2/4/17 | Katie McHugh

Posted on 02/04/2017 8:07:57 AM PST by grimalkin

Republican voters overwhelmingly approve of President Donald Trump temporarily halting the importation of refugees, even after a media firestorm falsely labeled it a “Muslim ban.”

Rasmussen Reports filtered out media hysteria and asked likely voters: “The federal government has banned refugees from all countries from entering the United States for the next four months until there is a better system in place to keep out individuals who are terrorist threats. Do you favor or oppose such a ban?” A majority, 52 percent, favored the move, while 43 percent opposed it, and six percent were unsure.

Men strongly approved of the temporary ban, with 61 percent supporting it and 34 percent opposing it. Only 43 percent of women support it, while 51 percent oppose it.

Younger voters are far more in favor of the moratorium than older ones: Of those aged 18 to 39, 57 percent favored the ban. Meanwhile, 49 percent of voters aged 40 and older approved of the ban.

It is that the Democrats are now more socialist & communist than real Representative Republic Americans. They only wrap themselves in the flag or say the Statue of Liberty is crying which makes some of us on the right think “oh, they really are Americans.” But sadly they are not. They do not love our country, they do not uphold or believe in the Constitution (frivolous lawsuits - like from judge in Seattle), they do not believe in our form of government and they do not love our people.
It does not matter that the communist Obama used the very same ban on terror countries that Trump did. Media ignored it. Democrats are intellectually lazy & partisan to ignore the true in this fact.

As socialists & communists have always done in the 20th Century, they will return to their violent roots. Protests, riots, coups. We see it now federal employees calling for a coup, Hollywood calling for a coup, assassination and obstructionist legal strategies to put Americans at risk. They prevent our free speech, obstructing our peaceful protests with violence.

Democrats are communists and they kill people.

Ask those who say they oppose Trump’s actions the name of their hometown so that refugees can be relocated to those areas where they will be most accepted and about 90% will change their vote.

I guess the MSNC and CNN polls are fake news. They are claiming an overwhelming majority of Americans oppose the ban.

I watched CSPAN last night and saw Petraeus speak and an AEI talk about bring Iraqi interpreters to the US. These are people we paid to perform translation duties from the local population.

There are “many tens of thousands” of these people that we told could move to the US. One charity CEO, a former soldier, has brought over nearly 4,750 interpreters, already.

The issue is that the people we paid are now targets for the Taliban and such.

When do people fight THEIR OWN D@MN FIGHTS and make their own change?

I am not against some select persons coming, but “many tens of thousands,” as was stated in the talk (by the charity CEO), IS CRAZY!

Very surprising result. Maybe we need a fast talking gay, Jewish, libertarian senior citizen to go on a book promotion tour that is interesting enough to cause Lib seniors to riot. Crazy idea I know. But maybe it’s working.

The DNC’s focus groups may be showing the same results.

If this shift shows up in their focus groups, the rats and their puppet master, George $oreA$$ will backoff and let Trump’s EX0 be the law of the land.

The rats can’t afford to po the Independent and under 40 voters.

Trump’s voters are behind him even more after the attacks by $oreA$$’s paid thugs and puppets at our airports and the riots at Bezerkley this week.

This is what is so important here:

Rasmussen Reports filtered out media hysteria and asked likely voters: “The federal government has banned refugees from all countries from entering the United States for the next four months until there is a better system in place to keep out individuals who are terrorist threats. Do you favor or oppose such a ban?” A majority, 52 percent, favored the move, while 43 percent opposed it, and six percent were unsure.

When the media hysteria is filtered out, Trump's support among independents, young voters and Republicans increased.

why would we need so many interpreters in the first place?

I am a woman. There is hope for my sex. They need to be mugged by the reality of what went on in the previous Administration.

Maybe Chucky Schumer will come out of the closet and do what you suggested.

I ran focus groups for about 5 years.

When the company’s who paid for them, allowed those doing the focus groups to do what appeared to be done here, the data from those groups was highly accurate.

I think white women tend to be 50/50 in their voting. It’s minority women that can be as high as 97% Democrat.

Neither my wife, nor I, could understand how we used so many, either.

I yelled out, “Did we use different people every week, promising all they could emigrate to the US?”

One interpreter has killed two assailants who would have killed the charity CEO guy (who was an Iraq solder veteran). I can understand helping that interpreter.

But the argument was made these Iraqis should be considered “US military veterans.” Really?

Some people have persecution karma. I think the Israelis have gotten over it.

Rooting for the “underdog” is supposed to be a morally superior position, but when the “underdog” turns out to by the fabled “Tasmanian devil”, a shrieking and malevolent creature that seems not to understand or even comprehend its own insanity, then it HAS to be cornered and subdued.

We cannot, by casual and only cursory attention, distinguish between the real underdogs and the similar-looking but unpredictable “Tasmanian devils”. But held in abeyance, the really rabid and unpredictable ones may be identified and placed in a confined space, to be handled with firm and unwavering discipline.

It is called “self-preservation”, a survival trait that has proved to be an evolutionary advantage.

Or perhaps, there are just too many people who ARE surviving, and the allure of this socialist or Communist doctrine is to make death cults acceptable or even desirable.
