The poll was conducted on September 23-24, 2017.
October 2, 2017 ― A new University of Delaware Center for Political Communication/RABA Research national poll found that nearly three-fourths (71%) of Americans surveyed view Muslims as being more "them" than "us."
Additionally, 69% of those surveyed do not believe Muslims are part of mainstream society. The findings illustrate the divide on issues related to the religion of Islam and Muslims in America today.
The results underscore that there is confusion and lack of understanding when it comes to Muslims. Only 44% of those surveyed could say they personally “know” someone who is Muslim, and 53% say they are “not familiar” with the religion of Islam.
Americans are also skeptical of several other major institutions, though most of the divides are not as dramatic. Most respondents say they distrust major institutions like the federal government (53%) and news media (53%). Even religious leaders scored a low 39% trust rating. Hollywood actors score the lowest, at 21%. In contrast, most respondents trust their neighbors (63%) and the military (68%).
Despite negative media coverage and protests of the Trump administration’s travel ban, 53% of respondents support such a ban.
In all, this survey suggests many Americans remain wary of Muslims and this suspicion reinforces support for policies like the Muslim ban.
This nationwide survey is the first in a series designed to better understand the significant divides that are prevalent in the political landscape and national discourse.
