Americans trust Donald Trump to protect America more than former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, despite the vocal replays of Democrats exclaiming she’s the most qualified candidate for president in history. This is contrary to recent polls that say otherwise.
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). Trump’s boost actually comes from Independent voters, as 38 percent say they trust Trump while only 26 percent favored Clinton.
The poll also reveals Americans support Trump’s proposal for a temporary ban on Muslims traveling to the United States. 48percent of those polled supported the idea while only 40 percent opposed it. (Again, eleven percent said they didn’t know or had no opinion)
The Morning Consult survey polled 2,001 voters from June 15-18 for a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
