According to a newly-released poll, more than one-third of all Americans know that the president of the country that they live in is a Christian — a full percentage point more! And only a little more than one-in-ten believe he's Muslim…
Just 34% of Americans correctly say U.S. President Barack Obama is a Christian, while 44% say they don't know Obama's religion and 11% say he is a Muslim…
Republicans are less likely than Democrats to say what Obama's faith is and are more likely to say Obama is a Muslim. It is unclear whether the 18% of Republicans who say Obama is a Muslim do so because they truly believe this is his religion, or because it is a politically charged idea.
Point that out next time someone tries to tell you that Americans are dangerously uninformed.
