A new Newsweek poll has found that a majority of Republicans believe President Obama "sympathizes with the goals of Islamic fundamentalists who want to impose Islamic law around the world." Some 52 percent of Republicans agreed with this. Only 33 percent of Republicans said the “allegation” was "probably not true."
Earlier this month, new polling by the Pew Forum on Religion found that almost 20 percent of Americans wrongly believe the President is Muslim. Significantly more Republicans—about one third—shared this incorrect view.
