More voters trust Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton to keep America safe, according to a new poll taken in the wake of the Orlando terror shooting.

The Morning Consult survey, shows 41 percent of voters trust the GOP presumptive nominee, compared with 37 percent who trust Clinton to keep the nation safe. More than 20 percent either didn't know or had no opinion.

According to the poll, 49 percent back the ban; 40 percent oppose it and 11 percent said they weren't sure.

In a breakdown of support of a ban related to specific countries:
  • Syria: 56 percent
  • Iraq: 55 percent
  • Afghanistan: 53 percent
  • Libya: 53 percent
  • Saudi Arabia: 51 percent
  • Pakistan: 51 percent
  • Mexico: 46 percent
  • Egypt: 46 percent
  • Belgium: 32 percent
  • France: 28 percent
  • Canada: 23 percent
The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percent.
