First off this is a massive sample. More than 2000 voters were asked both if they believe Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump is better situated to keep America safe from terrorism and whether or not they support Trump’s proposed temporary Muslim ban. The margin of error is a tiny 2%.
A new poll from Morning Consult shows that 41 percent of Americans believed that Trump would do a better job of keeping the country safe while only 37 percent favored Hillary Clinton. (Twenty-two percent said they didn’t know or had no opinion).
This is a particularly powerful result given that the media and Democrats have spent the last two weeks pounding Trump for his response to the Orlando terror attack. This is likely a low point in Trump’s support on this question which suggests Hillary is at a huge disadvantage on the most important question of the campaign!
The poll also shows that Americans support Trump’s proposal for a temporary ban on Muslims traveling to the United States. Forty-eight percent of those polled supported the idea while only 40 percent opposed it. (Eleven percent said they didn’t know or had no opinion)
This is, perhaps, less surprising given normal people’s reaction to the country being attacked by an Islamist radical who proclaimed is allegiance to ISIS. But it does reflect the fact that Americans understand the true threat to our country even as the Democrats and MSM continue to mislead about the issue. The fact that Trump’s lead is 4x the poll’s margin of error shows a huge advantage on this issue and proves that Clinton will not be able to use it to scare Americans into supporting her!
