Belief that Obama is Muslim is Durable, Bipartisan & Most Likely to Sway Dem Votes

with one comment

From Pew Research…..

The belief that Obama is Muslim, however, appears to have virtually no effect on Republican voters — who overwhelmingly support McCain in any case. But Democrats who share the opinion are significantly less likely to support Obama.

In the latest survey conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, 12% say Obama is Muslim, virtually unchanged from 10% in March. This opinion is not limited to voters who oppose Obama. Identical percentages of Republicans and Democrats (12% each) think he is Muslim, and the link between views of Obama’s religion and their candidate choice vote is strongest among Democrats.

Overall, 63% of the voters who say they back Obama for president identify him as Christian, but another 9% say he adheres to the Islamic faith.
