Among Republicans, just 16 percent think that the NY real estate magnate’s tone is insulting.
The petition was created almost two weeks ago, but the number of backers soared this week after Mr. Trump called for Muslims to be barred from entering the U.S. and claimed that parts of London are so radicalized that police officers fear for their lives.
The CBS News/New York Times poll has Trump with the commanding lead, garnering 35 percent of the Republican vote, while Texas Sen.
The poll also found that 41 per cent of Americans believe Mr. Trump’s bombastic campaign statements in general are frequently insulting.
“Donald J. Trump has been criticized by some for saying something similar”. Jeb Bush called Trump “unhinged”, while the Obama administration called the comments “morally reprehensible”.
“This latest demand that we not let Muslims into the country really plays right into the hands of the terrorists”, Clinton said.
There is evidence the group has been targeting the site since at least Wednesday, when it posted a YouTube video warning against Trump’s plan to halt the immigration of Muslims into the U.S.
In a one-on-one interview later Thursday in Manchester with WMUR.com, Graham would not say unequivocally that he will not support Trump.
Trump’s statement was by far the most dramatic response of a USA presidential candidate to last week’s shooting spree in California by a married couple whom the Federal Bureau of Investigation later said had become Daesh some time ago.
Trump’s outrageous demand has been roundly condemned by almost all presidential candidates, both Republican and Democrat, as well as the White House.
While the comments received widespread criticism, Daily Mail journalist and former Apprentice contestant Hopkins appeared on Fox News to back Trump’s remarks.
Calling Trump an “equal opportunity insulter”, Clinton said she previously took Trump’s presence on the national stage with a light, humorous heart.
Clinton has responded bluntly to Trump’s proposal, but has also tried to score political points by linking the broader Republican Party – particularly those Republicans running for president – with the bombastic front-runner.
