As a quick follow-up to my previous post, the Monkey Cage blog recently provided a link to this interesting press release from www.muslimamericansurvey.org. The press release discusses the findings of a recent public opinion survey on Muslims in America. The two “bottom-line” findings are that 1) Muslims who are more religiously active (i.e. attend their Mosque more often) are also more likely to be involved in American politics and 2) non-Muslims who are very religiously active are 18% more likely than those who are not religiously active to believe that Islam is compatible with American politics.
The survey and CNN write-up is available here: http://www.muslimamericansurvey.org/pdf/march82011.pdf
