Republicans in South Carolina don’t want to take any chances when it comes to Muslim terrorism.
The vast majority of GOP voters in the Palmetto State think that Donald Trump’s idea to put a temporary ban on Muslim immigration is good policy.
Preliminary exit poll results indicate that three-quarters of the state’s primary voters support temporarily banning Muslims who are not U.S. citizens from entering the United States. That’s even more than the support for this proposal among GOP voters in New Hampshire, 65 percent – a core support group for Trump in that state.
Many fewer – but still more than four in 10 – favor deporting undocumented immigrants, another very strong group for Trump in New Hampshire. And, in another helpful result for Trump, four in 10 pick him among five top candidates as best able to handle the economy – twice as many as pick his nearest competitor on this issue,Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
