A Matter Of Opinion

Religion and the mosque

Interesting poll question from the Economist. Second one down.

Whether or not you think the Islamic cultural centre and mosque should be built near the World Trade Center site, do you think that Muslims have a constitutional right to build a mosque there?


Yes, 50.2%

By party

Dem, 57.5; GOP, 31.8; Ind,  62.3

Then there is the Pew Poll finding that 18 percent of Americans believe Obama is Muslim.That is up from 11 percent in March 2009.

Thoughts on any of this? What new information “informs” the surge in belief that Obama is Muslim? How could so many people be wrong about the constitutional question?
