Trump has said the ban is necessary to keep would-be terrorists from traveling to the United States, but opponents have argued that it is intended to keep Muslims from traveling to the country.

Fifty-seven percent of Americans say the courts acted correctly by blocking the travel ban from taking effect, while 39 percent say they courts are wrongly interfering. Eighty-two percent of Democrats and 56 percent of independents say the courts are acting rightly, while 73 percent of Republicans say they're wrongly interfering.
