"GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump's support is rising in
New Hampshire despite his controversial call for a ban on Muslims
entering the U.S., according a poll out Friday.
The 90.9 WBUR survey
finds Trump with 27 percent support among GOP primary voters, 15 points
above New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who has climbed 6 percent in the
last month to claim second place in New Hampshire.
Trump is up 4 points from the same poll in November, marking his best showing in the Granite State yet.
showing follows his suggestion that the U.S. temporarily halt admitting
Muslims to the homeland on Monday. He argued that the drastic measure
is necessary for preventing radical Islamic terrorism on American soil.
Multiple lawmakers from both political parties have since condemned Trump's suggestion as both impractical and unconstitutional.
Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) ranks third with 11 percent, while Sen. Ted Cruz
(R-Texas) is a close fourth with 10 percent of his own.
Former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-) completes the GOP's current top five in New Hampshire, netting 8 percent there.

Donald Trump's 12/7/15 press release that The Hill describes as "controversial":
12/7/15, "Donald J. Trump Statement on Preventing Muslim Immigration," New York, NY
"Donald J. Trump is calling for a
total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until
our country's representatives can figure out what is going on.
According to Pew Research, among others, there is great hatred towards
Americans by large segments of the Muslim population. Most recently, a
poll from the Center for Security Policy released
data showing "25% of those polled agreed that violence against
Americans here in the United States is justified as a part of the global
jihad" and 51% of those polled, "agreed that Muslims in America should
have the choice of being governed according to Shariah." Shariah
authorizes such atrocities as murder against non-believers who won't
convert, beheadings and more unthinkable acts that pose great harm to
Americans, especially women.
Mr. Trump stated, "Without
looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred
is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will
have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this
problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the
victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and
have no sense of reason or respect for human life. If I win the election
for President, we are going to Make America Great Again." - Donald J. Trump"
