Growing Number of Americans Falsely Believe President Obama is Muslim
August 19, 2010 8:11 AM
A new poll from the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life indicates that the number of Americans who erroneously believe President Obama is a Muslim is growing.
In March 2009, the percentage was 11 percent. Today, it's 18 percent.
The percentage of those asserting that the president is a Christian -- which he is -- has gone down in that time, from 48% in March 2009 to 34% today.
A plurality of Americans -- 43% -- say they don't know what religion the president is.
