Increasing number of Americans say Obama is Muslim

Share of Republicans who believe president is Muslim has doubled over past year


An increasing number of Americans believe Obama is a Muslim, according to a new poll by the think tank Pew Research Centre. The share of Americans who believe the president is Muslim has increased from 12 per cent in 2008 to 18 per cent today. Also, the number of people that believe he’s Christian has decreased significantly—34 per cent compared to 48 per cent in March 2009. Though the American public thinks that Obama isn’t reliant on his faith as say, George W. Bush, they are more likely to report higher levels of satisfaction with his approach to religion.

Increasing number of Americans say Obama is Muslim

  1. Democracy is a great idea but with an ignorant and uneducated population it is a recipe for disaster. Look they elected George W Bush twice. We elected Mulroney twice. We should be investing in education in a serious way.

    • we also elected Trudeau, Chretien and Paul Martin so I see what you mean

  2. Obama is not an honest man so who has any idea what he is, if anything.

  3. You don't mean education, you mean brain wash suiting your ideas, perhaps NDP?

    • Not really , the ability to think for oneself would be the goal. Brain washing is more the pervue of creationists, born agains and hard core republicans with the assistance of fox news.

      • or communist.
