Can You Guess Their Voting Patterns?

NEW YORK A new Gallup poll finds that many Americans -- what it calls "substantial minorities" -- harbor "negative feelings or prejudices against people of the Muslim faith" in this country. Nearly one in four Americans, 22%, say they would not like to have a Muslim as a neighbor.

While Americans tend to disagree with the notion that Muslims living in the United States are sympathetic to al-Qaeda, a significant 34% believe they do back al-Qaeda. And fewer than half -- 49% -- believe U.S. Muslims are loyal to the United States.

Almost four in ten, 39%, advocate that Muslims here should carry special I.D. That same number admit that they do hold some "prejudice" against Muslims. Forty-four percent say their religious views are too "extreme."

In every case, Americans who actually know any Muslims are more sympathetic.
People who've actually met someone who is Muslim are more tolerant? You don't say! Funny, it's the same with gays and African Americans...

Forty percent of Americans want Muslims to carry special I.D.? Do they want them to have to pin it to their shirts? God, this is America! These haters are revolting. And unless things start to change around here, I'm going to be doing the revolting.

And while we're on the subject, go check out Shakespeare's Sister's post on the FBI investigation into hate speech on LGF. I'm shocked, SHOCKED!
