A new Vanderbilt poll has found presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump with a 9 percentage point lead over Democrat Hillary Clinton in Tennessee.

The survey released Thursday found Trump with support from 44 percent and Clinton with 35 percent of the 1,001 registered voters polled. Thirteen percent said they were either undecided or said they wouldn't support either candidate.

Of those who said they didn't plan to vote for either Trump or Clinton, 42 percent were Republicans and 22 percent were Democrats.

The survey also found that 48 percent of voters oppose a temporary ban on all Muslims traveling to the United States, while about 40 percent would support one.

But 44 percent said they'd support increased law enforcement patrols of Muslim neighborhoods, while 32 percent said they'd oppose the move.
