Additional Trend Information
Sample and Methodology detail

American voters oppose 51 - 46 percent President Donald Trump's order suspending for 90 days all travel to the U.S. from seven nations, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.

Voters oppose 60 - 37 percent President Trump's order suspending immigration of all refugees from any nation to the U.S. for 120 days, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.

Voters also oppose 70 - 26 percent Trump's order suspending indefinitely all immigration of Syrian refugees to the U.S.

Trump's executive order on immigration will make the nation more safe, 38 percent of voters say, while 39 percent say it will make the U.S. less safe and 21 percent say the order won't affect safety.

The executive order on immigration is intended to be a ban on Muslims, voters say 51 - 45 percent. Mainstream Islam is a peaceful religion, 58 percent of American voters say, while 26 percent say Islam encourages violence.

"Homegrown jihadists" pose the greater terrorist threat to the U.S., 56 percent of voters say, while 17 percent say "radicalized foreign visitors" are a greater threat and 14 percent say "terrorists hiding among Syrian refugees" are a greater threat.

"Message to President Donald Trump: 'Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free' still has profound resonance with Americans," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"Significant pushback on immigration tells the president that many voters are not on board with a ban on refugees and that voters are strongly opposed to holding back those most threatened, Syrian refugees."

American voters oppose 50 - 44 percent "suspending immigration from 'terror prone' regions, even if it means turning away refugees..." This reverses the findings of a Quinnipiac University poll conducted January 5 - 9, before President Trump was inaugurated, showing voters supported this measure 48 - 42 percent.

A total of 70 percent of American voters say it is "very likely" or "somewhat likely" that there will be a terrorist attack in the U.S. with a large loss of life.

President Trump's Approval Rating

American voters give President Trump a slightly negative 42 - 51 percent job approval rating, compared to his negative 36 - 44 percent job approval in a January 26 survey by the independent Quinnipiac University. Today, men approve 50 - 43 percent, while women disapprove 58 - 35 percent.

Trump gets a negative 43 - 52 percent favorability rating, while Vice President Mike Pence gets a positive 43 - 39 percent favorability.

Looking at Trump's personal qualities, American voters say:
  • 54 - 42 percent that he is not honest;
  • 50 - 47 percent that he does not have good leadership skills;
  • 52 - 45 percent that he does not care about average Americans;
  • 60 - 35 percent that he is not level-headed;
  • 70 - 26 percent that he is a strong person;
  • 65 - 31 percent that he is intelligent;
  • 58 - 38 percent that he does not share their values.
Donald Trump will do more to divide the country, rather than unite the nation, voters say 58 - 37 percent. He will mostly bring the right kind of change, 41 percent of voters say, while 44 percent say he will bring the wrong kind of change.

Voters approve 44 - 41 percent of the way Trump is handling the economy. Looking at his handling of other issues, voters:
  • Disapprove 56 - 38 percent of the way he is handling foreign policy;
  • 44 percent approve of his handling of terrorism, as 49 percent disapprove;
  • Disapprove 56 - 41 percent of the way he is handling immigration issues.
From February 2 - 6, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,155 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 2.9 percentage points. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones.
