A massive Gallop poll of 275,000 adults has found President Obama's approval rating among American Muslims is an astounding 78%. In spite of President Obama's claim he is a Christian, we have to wonder if Muslims don't believe he is secretly one of them. Mormons had the lowest approval of President Obama.
The differences in Obama’s approval ratings across the religious groups included in this analysis have held fairly constant across time, even as Obama’s overall rating has fallen by 15 points between the first half of 2009 and the first seven months of this year. American Muslims — in the news recently with the controversy over proposed plans to build an Islamic center and mosque near ground zero in New York City — have given Obama his highest ratings in all three time periods: 86% in the first half of 2009, 83% in the second half of 2009, and 78% so far this year. Mormons have given Obama his lowest ratings across time, dropping from 43% in the first half of 2009 to 24% this year.
