    US voters are split over President Donald Trump’s executive order on temporarily banning individuals from seven mostly Muslim countries from coming to the United States, a new poll revealed on Friday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On January 27, Trump signed an executive order to block refugees from coming in the United States for 120 days; indefinitely suspend the entry of Syrian refugees; and restrict immigration from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen for 90 days.

    "Slightly more Americans disapprove (51 percent) than approve (45 percent) of President Trump’s executive order temporarily banning people from entering the US from seven designated countries," a CBS News poll found. "Views on temporarily suspending entry for refugees are the same."

    The poll also revealed that 36 percent of US voters agree that the travel ban will make the country safer while just as many, 36 percent, say it will make the nation less safe, and another 22 percent say the ban will have no effect.
