A new poll out from Gallup shows Obama has big support from Muslims, Jews and atheists. His approval ratings from American Muslims has dropped only 4% since the last poll in 2009. In 2010 he dropped to 78% but today, his favorability has risen to 80%. The poll compares Obama’s Muslim approval to G. W. Bush in 2008, and says Obama is much more favored. No mention that Bush had been in office for 8 years at that time, compared to Obama’s not quite 3 years, and Bush was tasked with protecting us from Muslims. It’s that simple. See below for who conducted this poll for Gallup.
Compared with the poll numbers of President George W. Bush, Obama enjoys a very high level of approval among Muslim Americans. In 2008, a mere 7 percent of the Muslim American population approved of the job Bush was doing especially when it came to the war on terrorism.
Thank about that? Our Muslim Americans blame Bush for the consequences of 9/11. Nice. They blamed him for being a Christian too.
Meanwhile, 50 percent of Catholics, 37 percent of Protestants and only 25 percent of Mormons approve of Obama’s handling of the presidency.
The Gallup poll was “conducted by the Abu Dhabi Gallup Center.” In the U.S., Muslim American Dalia Mogahed is the Executive Director of the Gallup
Center for Muslim Studies. She is also Obama’s adviser of the Office of Muslim Affairs. Recognition of Mogahed as a high-profile Obama advisor (and connected to a pollster, as well) grabbed interest when she appeared on a British television show, Muslimah Dilemma and said that Shariah Law is “gender justice” for Muslim women.
