I don’t like the word “travel ban,” and usually use “travel restriction,” more than often but for the sake of this article, I digress.
A majority of Americans have decided President Trump’s travel ban is not all that bad. A Politico/Morning Consult poll found 60 percent of voters support the State Department’s “new guidelines for allowing traveling aliens and refugees into this country.
It seems that Americans don’t have a problem with what’s in the bill even though many liberals are going to fight that the poll didn’t specifically use the words “Trump Travel Ban.”
What you rarely hear in the media is this will affect the visa applicants from six predominately Muslim countries who must prove beyond a shadow of a doubt “close family relationship with a U.S. resident in order to enter the country.”
Only 28 percent is opposed to the new ban.

A large majority, 84 percent of Republicans, supports the restrictions, while just 9 percent oppose them.
Democrats are split on the issue, with 41 percent supporting the ban and 46 percent opposing it.
The poll question does not specifically mention President Trump or his executive orders on immigration. The poll was conducted from June 29 to 30 among 1,989 registered voters. The margin of error is 2 percent.
The poll comes after the Supreme Court last month decided to allow a limited version of Trump’s order to take effect. The high court also agreed to hear the administration’s appeal of the lower court rulings that froze the ban.
But the Supreme Court carved out new criteria that further narrowed the scope of the revised ban.
Justices said that the ban could only apply to refugees and travelers who do not have a “bona fide” relationship to a person or entity in the U.S. The administration issued guidance to clarify exactly who is and isn’t covered under the new criteria.

Liberal social media users are already trying to debunk the poll saying that the voters never got a chance to say if they were for or against the “Trump travel ban,’ but their votes support what’s in the proposed ban so you will hear a lot of semantics going on today.
