Our take: Forty-one percent of Americans have unfavorable views of Muslims, according to a recent survey titled "The American Divide: How We View Arabs and Muslims." This Washington Post article highlights several of the survey's additional findings. In light of the favorability views, perhaps one of the most interesting statistic is that almost six in 10 Americans said they don't know a Muslim.
Americans are almost evenly divided in how they view Muslims, according to a survey released Thursday (Aug. 23) by the Arab American Institute in Washington.
But the online survey, which also gauged views on Mormons, Jews, Catholics, evangelicals, Buddhists and Hindus also found a striking generational gap and significant differences between political groups.
The American Divide: How We View Arabs And Muslims, found that 41 percent of Americans had unfavorable views of Muslims, compared to 40 percent who held favorable views.
