Nearly two-thirds of Republican primary voters back Donald Trump’s proposed moratorium on Muslim immigrants, claims a new poll.

According to Bloomberg, the poll — which has a 4-percent margin of error — shows an astounding 65 percent of Republicans agreed with Trump following his initial proclamation. After hearing detailed arguments from the opposition, 64 percent of the voters still agreed with the real estate mogul, suggesting “despite some conventional wisdom expressed in the last 48 hours, [the proposal] is unlikely to hurt Trump at least in the primary campaign.”

Furthermore, 37 percent of all voters also agree with the Republican front-runner’s proposal.
