More than a quarter of Democratic college students are in favor of banning President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign "Make America Great Again" hats on their respective campuses according to a new poll.

According to The College Fix, the online poll featured the answers of 1,000 Democratic and Democratic-leaning college students.

What are the details?

The poll, which College Pulse conducted for the outlet, found that 27 percent of respondents were in favor of banning the MAGA hat from campuses.

Fifteen percent of the students reported that they favored banning the hats; while 12 percent said they were strongly in favor of banning the hat from campuses.

The poll also reported that 39 percent of the Democratic students said that they opposed banning the hats, and 34 percent strongly opposed banning the hats, meaning 73 percent of Democratic and Democratic-leaning students oppose a MAGA hat ban.

The poll garnered opinions from students at Clemson University, Western Kentucky University, Missouri State University, University of California Riverside, and Bossier Parish Community College (Bossier City, Louisiana).

Among students who identify as "strong Democrat," 31 percent said they favored banning the hats from campus, and 69 percent of "strong Democrats" opposed banning the hats.

Twenty-seven percent of so-called "weak Democrats" favored banning the hats, and 73 percent opposed banning the hats.

Of the students who "lean Democrat," 23 percent favored the hat ban, and 77 percent opposed it.

The poll, which was conducted in September, has a margin of error of +/-3.5 percent.
