Obama a Christian? No, Say Two-Thirds of Americans

In the latest Gallup poll, 66% of Americans say that President Obama is either a Muslim, someone of no faith at all, or they just can't tell. Only 34% say that he's a Christian -- most likely of a generic sort, rather than a devotee of a denomination.

-- From "Poll: Most Americans do not identify Obama as Christian" by Mitchell Landsberg, Los Angeles Times 6/23/12

The poll released Friday . . . is striking, because few presidents have spoken and written as much about their faith as Obama. . . . He uses Christian language and imagery often in speeches.

[Apparently] a certain percentage of the populace knows that Obama professes a Christian faith but doesn't believe him.

Obama's father was born into a Muslim family in Kenya, but was an atheist by the time Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, according to the president's accounts. Obama has written that he was not raised in a religious household, but converted to Christianity as an adult, in part through [the heretical Rev. Jeremiah] Wright's influence.

This Gallup poll is not the only survey in the past several years to reveal that many Americans still aren’t sure what religion Mr. Obama practices. A 2010 Pew Research Center survey found that nearly one in five Americans say the president is a Muslim.

A quick analysis of Pew surveys from 2008 through 2010 reveals that a growing number of Americans think Mr. Obama is a Muslim. In March 2008, 12 percent of Americans said he is a Muslim, but two years later that number had grown to 18 percent.

From "Gallup: 44% Don’t Know Obama’s Religion; 11% Say He’s Muslim; 8% Say He Has None" by Terence P. Jeffrey, 6/23/12

The group of those who say they do not know Obama’s religion crosses party lines, with 47 percent of Republicans saying they don’t know, 46 percent of Independents saying they don’t know, and 36 percent of Democrats saying they don’t know.

The group of those who say Obama is a Muslim also crosses party lines, with 18 percent of Republicans saying he is a Muslim, 12 percent of Independents, and 3 percent of Democrats.

Gallup’s analysis of its own poll incorrectly says that “[j]ust 34 percent of Americans correctly say U.S. President Barack Obama is a Christian”—including 20 percent who generically say he is a “Christian,” 7 percent who say he is a “Protestant,” 4 percent who say he is a “Baptist,” 2 percent who say he belongs to the United Church of Christ, and 1 percent who say he is a Methodist.

Independents were more likely than Republicans or Democrats to believe that Obama was of “no religion” or “none.” Ten percent of Independents said that was their understanding, compared 7 percent of Republicans and 6 percent of Democrats.
