The numbers have changed significantly since the Pulse Club massacre by Islamist extremist Omar Mateen.
Breitbart.com reported:

New polling data from Reuters shows a surge in support for a far-reaching temporary ban on any Muslim entry to the United States.

In the wake of the terrorist attack in Orlando, 50 percent of likely voters now support a temporary halt on Muslim entry into the United States. Just 42 percent of likely voters oppose a temporary ban.

That suggested policy is a much harder line than the temporary ban on Muslim immigration, or the long-term ban on immigration from countries with a history of radical Islam, that have been proposed by GOP candidate Donald Trump.

The finding represents a 22-point swing since the beginning of the month. At the end of May, just 40 percent of likely voters supported a halt, while 54 percent opposed one.
