Skip to comments.Poll shows more Americans think Obama is a Muslim
Posted on 08/18/2010 6:56:14 PM PDT by markomalley
The number of Americans who believe -- wrongly -- that President Obama is a Muslim has increased significantly since his inauguration and now account for nearly 20 percent of the nation's population.
Those results, from a new Pew Research Center survey, were drawn from interviews done before the president's comments about the construction of an Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero, and they suggest that there could be serious political danger for the White House as the debate continues.
The president's religion, like his place of birth, has been the subject of Internet-spread rumors and falsehoods since before he began his presidential campaign, and the poll indicates that those rumors have gained currency since Obama took office. The number of people who now correctly identify Obama as a Christian has dropped to 34 percent, down from nearly half when he took office.
White House officials expressed dismay over the poll results. Faith adviser Joshua DuBois blamed "misinformation campaigns" by the president's opponents.
"While the president has been diligent and personally committed to his own Christian faith, there's certainly folks who are intent on spreading falsehoods about the president and his values and beliefs," DuBois said.

The number of Americans who believe

So that means, I guess, that 80 percent of the populace is blind, deaf, dumb, or in denial.
Hopefully, those skeptical Americans will be the ones who vote.
Wrongly...yeah, that’s funny...I won’t even read the rest of the article because this journolist is obviously oblivious to examining even the possibility that he might be wrong and the with a little bit of investigation, a good journalist would discover that Obama is, in fact, a moose limb.
How about politically unaware?
The stealth jihadist at work!
“While the president has been diligent and personally committed to his own Christian faith”
How so? When is the last time he went to Church?
Let’s see.....where was our President on Christmas eve? And where is our President on Sunday mornings? Oh, that’s right. There’s golf, and sleeping it off and family time and well, you know. Don’t cha?
All the liberal press ever reports is that Obama did not go to church.
They NEVER report that he did go to church, do they?
Are we not known by our actions?
I was just talking with my pal and mistakenly referred to my “Catholic” faith. “Your Jewish faith,” he reminded me. “My Jewish faith,” I corrected. What a laugh we had.
>> When is the last time he went to Church? <<
When Rev. Wright was preaching, of course!
So do I. This poll happened before the Victory Mosque debacle
Could it be the DOJ prosecuted the Holy Land Foundation, Dallas(?) for fronting a fund raising operation for Hamas but yet Obama sends Hamas $900,000,000.00 of our money to Hamas early in his presidency then again another $400,000,000.00 of our money.
Gee, what are they (we) thinking?
great point.....but as you know, the muslim state controlled commie Marxist pravda media will not speak about anything regarding or answering your question. saudi controlled FOX included.
In other words, he is far far far more insidious than he would be if he were simply a muslim.
People do not ignorantly think he’s a Muslim.
They believe he is a closet Muslim and is lying about it. Hasn’t he made overt statements on trips and in interviews with Muslims that he is “one of them” by birth, parentage, where he grew up, etc.?
IMHO leftists like Obama and Reverand Wright don’t respect traditional Christianity and show far more reverence for Islam.
Yep that pretty well sums it up for me too. Not even going to read the rest of the article. Once I saw the ‘wrongly’ thing going on, well the writer made his position known didn’t he?
Obama is Muslim, period. He admitted it, albeit accidently, during an ABC interview and has shown it throughout the time he has spent contaminating the White House.
If it looks like a duck....quacks like a duck...walks like a duck...
Obama is as about as Christian as I am Muslim, and I had ham for dinner tonight.
We have seen no evidence to verify that that POS is actually a citizen much less a native born.
