Pew poll finds 17 percent of registered voters think Obama is Muslim

The latest Pew research poll found that 17 percent of registered voters think President Barack Obama is Muslim, while 31 percent of the respondents said they didn’t know what the president’s religious affiliation was despite the fact that he has repeatedly insisted that he is a Christian. The Huffington Post reports:

Three and a half years into the presidency of Barack Obama, 17 percent of registered voters still believe that he is a Muslim despite the fact that he is a Christian, according to a poll released Thursday by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. Forty-nine percent correctly identified that he is a Christian, while 31 percent of respondents said they did not know.

The poll showed a striking increase in Republicans and conservative Republicans who say that Obama’s Muslim. Sixteen percent of both groups in October 2008 said that he was Muslim, while in this survey, 30 percent of Republicans and 34 percent of conservative Republicans said so.
