Obama’s approval rating highest among Muslims


obama seriousPresident Barack Obama’s approval rating is higher among Muslims than any other religious group, a new poll says.

According to a Gallup poll released Friday that tracked responses for the first six months of 2014, 72 percent of Muslims said they approve of the president, compared with just 20 percent who disapprove.


Mormons were the least approving religious group, with 18 percent of Mormons approving and 78 percent disapproving of the president. Mormons in the past have ranked as the most conservative major religious group in the U.S.
The survey underscores a religious divide when it comes to presidential approval — Obama is more popular among non-Christians and less popular among Christians.

Those who classify as “Other non-Christian” gave the president a 59 percent approval rating, while Jewish Americans gave Obama a 55 percent approval rating and atheists or those who subscribe to no religion have a 54 percent approval rating.

Catholics, on the other hand, have only a 44 percent approval rating of Obama, compared with 51 percent disapproval. Protestants and other Christians are more critical, with 37 percent approving and 58 percent disapproving.

Friday’s findings are in line with Gallup results on religious groups’ approval ratings of Obama since the beginning of his presidency — the relative rank of the groups have not changed in the six years Obama has been in office. The president’s approval rating in every group for the past six months has dropped 5-7 points from the average of his entire presidency.
Gallup reported that Obama’s overall approval rating for the past six months is 43 percent.

The survey was conducted January-June 2014 with a random sample of 88,801 adults from all 50 states and Washington, D.C. The margin for error for the entire sample is plus-or-minus one point — though that number is higher for some of the individual religion samples.

      But Obama is not a Muslim and does not have a militia to back his claim for being a Caliph . I am afraid we are stuck with Baghdadi, at least for a while unless of course the Iranian ayatollahs defeat him and reclaim the caliphate . Who knows ? An exciting future that will take Iraq back another 1500 years awaits the region . Stay tuned

        Iran needs the Caliph after all he is the making of Bashar and General Suleimanei.. I have been reading so much that the General do not want Bashar to bomb the ISIS and take it slow with them.. now what does that tell you and why is ISIS is focusing on eradicating the Syrian FSA and jihadists instead of Assad is beyond reasons.. the same for Assad who is buying oil from the Caliph and not bombing him hardly. it makes wonder what they’re all up to.. The Caliph is more tough on Sunnis than Shiites..
