New Hampshire Exit Poll: Strong Support For Trump's Ban On Muslims

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump easily won the GOP primary in New Hampshire on Feb. 9.

The New York Daily News called Trump voters "mindless zombies" and "brain dead" in its headline for Feb. 10, but exit polling shows that about two-thirds of GOP voters strongly agree with Trump's proposed temporary ban on Muslims, reports ABC News.

Trump advocated a “total and complete shutdown” of Muslims coming into the U.S. in December 2015, but it was not clear how the billionaire would ban people based on their self-identified religious beliefs.

Exit polls in New Hampshire also found 40 percent of GOP voters support the deportation of undocumented immigrants.

CNN reports that exit polling showed 75 percent of New Hampshire GOP voters were very worried about the economy, 60 percent were concerned about terrorism, about 90 percent were not satisfied with the federal government and nearly 40 percent were angry about how the government works.
