Poll: 44% think of Muslim-Americans as less patriotic than other Americans

The latest Economist/YouGov Poll suggests that many Americans question the loyalty of Muslim-Americans. 44% think of them as less patriotic than other Americans. Still, more than half,, or 51% see Muslim-Americans as patriotic.

The numbers rise when older Americans and Republicans are surveyed. 60 percent of respondents aged 65 and older, and 70 percent of all Republican respondents, regard Muslim-Americans as less patriotic than others.

However, in the poll, Muslim-Americans are believed to also suffer from the most discrimination as compared to Christian-Americans, Jewish-Americans and non-believers.

Seven out of 10 people surveyed feel that  Muslim-Americans are discriminated either “a great deal” or “a fair amount”.

Only about four in ten think Christians and non-believers face some discrimination. 48% say Jews do.
