(Sky News) Almost one in three Britons would support a temporary ban on Muslims entering the UK, similar to that proposed by US presidential candidate Donald Trump, a new Sky Data poll reveals.
Some 29% of the public would back such a ban on Muslims who are not citizens of the UK coming into the country. The majority of Britons (51%) would oppose such a move, however, with 43% strongly opposing.
It comes after Mr Trump called for a "total and complete shutdown of the Muslims entering the United States" in the wake of the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California and deadly terror attack in Paris.
