Most Americans Have No Clue that Obama is a Christian
KultureKritic.com Staff Writer
According to a new Gallup Poll, most Americans don’t know that President Obama is Christian. In fact, 34 percent of the survey respondents say that Obama is a Christian and the rest either think that he’s affiliated with another faith or say that they simply don’t know.
Among those who responded to the survey, seven percent believe that Obama is a Protestant, and four percent believe he is a Baptist. Another 11 percent believe he is a Muslim, and 8 percent think he has no religion at all. The rest have no idea.
President Obama consistently reminds the public that he is a Christian, but most Americans never take the time to listen to his speeches. Even when he announced his support for same-s*x marriage, the president reminded listeners that both he and his wife Michelle are Christians who go to church on many Sundays.
Republicans are the ones most likely to believe that Obama is something other than Christian. Only 24 percent of Republicans believe that President Obama is a Christian, while 52 percent Democrats are accurate about this fact. Republicans are also more likely to label Obama as a Muslim (18 percent), while only a small percentage (3 percent) of Democrats make the same mistake.
