Poll: Majority Want Fewer Refugees, Support Donald Trump’s Migration Cuts

Another poll shows a majority of voters support President Donald Trump’s executive order curbing travelers from seven terror-exporting countries, and shows that a majority want fewer refugees imported into American communities overall.

Pollsters found that 51 percent of respondents want the U.S. to accept fewer refugees than the 100,000 per year President Barack Obama wanted to import. Trump’s new White House plan trims that number to 50,000 per year.

Fifty-three percent of respondents also support the Trump’s Executive Order banning all refugee resettlement from Syria and freezing refugee resettlement for 120 days, according to the poll, which was conducted for the Harvard Center for American Political Studies by the Harris Poll company. The company is co-managed by Democratic pollster Mark Penn. Forty-seven percent of respondents oppose the new curbs, according to Harris, which did not release details showing the percentage of people who strong support or oppose the curbs.
“The Left’s tactics and protests are backfiring,” said GOP strategist John McLaughlin, adding:
The substance of the President’s messages and policies has the support of the majority of American voters. The President’s push for change through better security and economic growth is moving his job approval and popular ratings up. There renewed hope in America and the majority of voters are supporting our President while the Left shows how out of touch and failed their policies are.
