If one were to listen to Democrats and liberal media talking heads (which I would not recommend), it would seem that 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is the most-hated man since Hitler goosestepped into Poland.
To deal with the very real threat posed by radical Islam, Trump recently proposed halting all immigration to the United States by Muslims until America can finally assess and strengthen our security measures.
The left, as one might expect, has been none-too-kind to the Donald as they are perfectly fine with openly discriminating against Christian Americans and stomping-upon the constitutional rights of Americans, but claim to be uncomfortable with the idea of refusing immigration of Muslims from another country.
The pundits began circling and reiterated what they had claimed a dozen times before: “Trump is finished!” Surely, nobody could take this proposal seriously, right?
Then the left’s rhetoric changed; it went from incredulous mocking to sheer steadfast viciousness. The unimaginable had happened: Americans were onboard with Trump’s plan.
No, not every American, but according to a recent Rasmussen poll, the plurality of Americans are in favor of Trump’s proposal. It seems that they are willing to confront the threat of radical Islam even if President Obama is not.
The poll found that a whopping 46% of the likely voters polled would support a ban on Muslim immigration until the U.S. could strengthen their security measures. Only 40% would oppose the policy.
Among likely Republican voters, 66 percent would support the ban, while 24 percent would oppose it.
Just 30 percent of likely Democratic voters would favor the proposed ban, while 55 percent said they would oppose it.
Those with no party affiliation said they would support the ban by a 45–39 margin.
Democrats are in serious trouble. Their frontrunner, Hillary Clinton, has a significant image problem as she is as approachable as a porcupine, as trustworthy as a used car salesman and as entitled as Marie Antoinette while still lacking any resonating message other than “It’s my turn for the presidency!”
Her messages have fallen flat and she remains in the race for no other reason than no other viable challenger materialized. With none of the charisma of Barack Obama and a rehashing of economic policies like those that have devastated our economy, Clinton is facing an uphill battle as the Democrats remain underfunded and baffled by the surge of popularity by “extreme” candidates like Ted Cruz and Donald Trump.
