Nearly half of Brits surveyed said they wanted to welcome President Trump to the UK
Forty-nine per cent of adults quizzed in the survey by polling firm YouGov backed the proposal to honour the US President with the high-profile welcome to the country including a stay at Buckingham Palace and state banquet.
In contrast, only 36 per cent of voters opposed the idea.
And the poll emerged as support continued to soar for a petition backing the invitation to President Trump.
In the YouGov poll, Ukip and Conservative voters were the most enthusiastic about the planned presidential visit.
Data showed that 76 per cent of Tories and 81 per cent of supporters of the anti-Brussels party were in favour of the visit.
Younger voters (53 per cent) and people who voted Labour at the last general election in 2015 (51 per cent) wanted the invitation to the president withdrawn.
On the policy that President Trump has introduced, the Government is clear that that policy is wrong
Men were strongly in favour of the visit, with 60 per cent in support and 29 per cent opposed.
But more women were opposed (43 per cent) than in favour (39 per cent).
Half of voters (50 per cent) quizzed in the poll though President Trump's ban on Syrian refugees and travellers from a string of Muslim-majority countries was a bad idea while 29 per cent supported the move.
Younger voters and those who voted Labour in the last general election were against the visit

Nearly 7,000 adults were interviewed online on 30 and 30 January for the YouGov poll.
Speaking at Prime Minister's Questions in the Commons, she said the Labour leader's "foreign policy is to object to and insult the democratically elected Head of State of our most important ally".
Theresa May accused Jeremy Corbyn of siding with anti-Trump protesters yesterday
Mrs May called the travel ban 'divisive and wrong'
Mrs May also accused Mr Corbyn of siding with anti-Trump protesters rather than being ready to fight for Britain's interests.
"He can lead a protest, I'm leading a country," the Prime Minister said.
Mrs May distance herself from President Trump's travel ban, calling the measure "divisive and wrong", she said.
"On the policy that President Trump has introduced, the Government is clear that that policy is wrong.
"We wouldn't do it. In six years as Home Secretary, I never introduced such a policy. We believe it is divisive and wrong," she said.
