The Washington Post poll found a majority of voters in New York (60%) and New York State (58%) want to remain suspended from President Trump’s list of travel bans, which would require the states to submit a list of people they consider “high risk” and “imminent threat” to national security.
In New York state, a majority (53%) of New York voters also support Trump’s ban, which the New Yorker called “unconstitutional.”
New Jersey voters were also less likely than the national average to call for a suspension of the travel suspension.
