A new poll reveals that 45 percent of the Democrats who responded believe that Christians are a greater threat to America than Muslims.
No shock that 72 percent of atheists agree.
But the surprise is that 18 percent of those who consider themselves ” very conservative” agree.
As do 29 percent of Protestants.
And 23 percent of Catholics.
Interestingly, the sample of Muslims was very small, but 100 percent said it is Muslims who are the greater danger.
The results are from a new WND/Clout poll by Clout Research, a national opinion research firm in Columbus, Ohio. The telephone survey of registered voters was taken Dec. 18-27, except for the holiday, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.35 percentage points.
Poll chief Fritz Wenzel said, “A surprising finding in the survey shows that one in three respondents said they believe Christians pose a greater threat to America than do Muslims. Among Democrats, 45 percent said Christians are more dangerous than are Muslims, while 36 percent of political independents said the same. Among Republicans, 20 percent said Christians are the greater threat.”
The question asked?
“Which do you believe pose the greatest threat to America – Muslims or Christians?”
The questions I might have asked?
Which is a bigger threat to America – a Muslim in the White House or a Muslim posing as a Christian?
Which is a bigger threat to America – the threat of radicalization from a mosque or from a church?
Which is a bigger threat to America – lone wolf Americans who fear their government or sleeper cell Islamic terrorists who wish to attack high profile targets to inflict fear on average Americans?
Here’s a test for you. Take a stroll through Hamtramck or Dearborn, Michigan with an anti-Muslim shirt on as opposed to walking through an NRA convention wearing an ISIS shirt on. Let’s see who comes out unscathed. Or if you’re feeling particularly chippy, take a walk through the hood in Chicago with a KKK shirt on and see how things work out for you.
Fact is that receiving some scowls and unappreciative glares are far different than receiving a double tap.
