A new Quinnipiac poll released last week shows more American voters support President Trump's executive order to temporarily suspend immigration from several Middle Eastern and North African countries.
By a margin of 48 percent to 42 percent, voters supported "suspending immigration from terror prone regions, even if it means turning away refugees."
A plurality of voters also said they would support requiring immigrants from Muslim-majority nations to register with American officials.
Fifty-three percent agreed and 41 percent opposed such an idea.
Quinnipiac's assistant director of the poll, Tim Malloy, said Trump's rhetoric on immigration practices may have helped him win the presidency, but that voters have stopped short of supporting a full ban.
