3. Muslims Give Obama 80% Approval Rating

With President Barack Obama's overall approval ratings hovering around all-time lows, one group remains strongly supportive of Obama and his performance on the job: Muslim Americans.

An overwhelming 80 percent of Muslim Americans approve of the way Obama is handling his job, according to a newly released survey by the Abu Dhabi Gallup Center, a partnership between Gallup and the Crown Prince Court of Abu Dhabi.

Jewish Americans — many of whom disapprove of Obama's policies regarding Israel — nevertheless give him a 65 percent approval rating.

His approval rating among atheists, agnostics, and those of no religion is 60 percent; among Catholics, 50 percent; among Protestants, 37 percent; and among Mormons, just 25 percent.

Obama's favorable rating among Muslim Americans has gone down slightly since 2009, when it stood at 84 percent, but still remains far higher than President George W. Bush's rating among Muslim Americans in 2008, 7 percent.

Unfortunately for Obama, Muslim Americans are the least likely members of any major religious group to be registered to vote — 65 percent compared with 91 percent of Protestant Americans and Jewish Americans, according to the Abu Dhabi Gallup Center.

This may be because many Muslim Americans are first-generation immigrants and may not yet be citizens. Muslim Americans as a group are also significantly younger than people of other religions — 36 on average — and youth is often associated with low voter-registration levels.

Thats about right. I haven't even met and African American that likes him in Texas. Most say he's not even and African American and can't even think of a name to call him. :wink:
