The [Thursday] Papers

"GOP frontrunner Donald Trump's proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States is racist, discriminatory, and a betrayal of American values. It's also very popular among Republican voters," the Intercept reports.

"Exit polls conducted by ABC News on Super Tuesday show that more than 60 percent of GOP voters in five states favor Trump's proposed ban. In Alabama and Arkansas, that figure rises to nearly 80 percent. Trump won seven of the day's 11 state primaries."

*

Before Democrats get too smug, though, consider this:

"A Fox News poll this December showed that even among Democrats there was broad support for the measure - as long as it was not identified with Trump himself. Some 45 percent of those polled favored banning Muslims when the plan was not identified as originating with Trump. When Trump's name was mentioned however, support dropped to 25 percent."

*

That reminds me of this: "Obama Supporters Actually Hate Obama's Policies."

*

Which reminds me of this: Republicans Like Obama's Ideas Better When They Think They're Donald Trump's.
