Yet, right on cue, CNN commissions a poll on President Trump's "travel ban" where they convince their readers it's really a Muslim Ban.
"As you may know, Donald Trump signed an executive order which prohibits travel to the U.S. for the next three months by citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries, and suspends the U.S. refugee program for four months while reducing the total number of refugees the U.S. will accept this year. Overall, do you favor or oppose this executive order?"
Of course, the question is leading, assumptive, and, oh yeah, over-weighted.
Pollsters don't provide information that might be relevant to the question, like "did you know Barack Obama listed these same seven countries as "unstable regions"? Or, that any U.S. President has the legal right to impose restrictions on any alien, (non-citizen) attempting to enter this country. Or, that Muslims who practice their Islamic faith literally, (according to their "bible", the Koran), their Sharia Law demands a complete submission to Islam.

With no advance information, and a completely deceptive/fallacious question, CNN got the results they needed to produce a false narrative:
Jan. 31-Feb. 2 2017
Favor 47% Oppose 53%
A total of 1,002 adults were interviewed by telephone nationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones. Among the entire sample, 29% described themselves as Democrats, 25% described themselves as Republicans, and 45% described themselves as independents or members of another party. (link)
So, CNN got their 6% margin of an "unfavorable" result, (crosstabs at the link show an 8.5 +/- "possible error"), before they provide down in their article how polarized the two parties are when it comes to our President's decisions:
"Across all these questions, opinions are sharply divided by party. Democrats are just as apt to oppose the executive order (88%) as Republicans are to support it (88%); independents tilt against, with 54% opposed. Republicans are 10 times as likely as Democrats to say the order makes the US safer (83% of Republicans vs. 8% of Democrats), and their opinions are again 180 degrees apart when asked about its impact on American values (80% of Republicans say it protects them while 81% of Democrats say it harms them). (link)
You won't have to look up any poll to find over 90% of CNN's articles, polls, and opinions are 100% anti-Trump---they just flat out hate the man, and they're not afraid to admit it. If CNN had provided the information I listed above previous to their bogus question, my conservative guess would be most American's would favor Trump's temporary actions by 10%-15% over the unfavorables. CNN is literally providing a false narrative without any regard to this nation's safety and security from our enemies---Radical Islamic Terrorist.
There has to come a point where Americans ask how far CNN, (and much of the liberal media), plans to plot against the best interest of our country. Or, how far will they go to destroy a United State's President?
