Many right-leaning voters have been deeply skeptical about Obama's faith since before he became president. The topic arose again prominently in 2012, when Obama faced former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a devout Mormon, in the general election. Obama rarely invokes his own faith in speeches and public appearances, though has remarked about his Christian faith during comments for holidays such as Easter.
The PPP survey obtained by MSNBC was conducted over the past week and has a margin of error of 4.1 points.
That latest poll ‘leaked’ to MSNBC poses the Muslim Obama question and it uncovers this. A majority of Republicans, and even more Donald Trump supporters, remain unconvinced that President Obama is a Christian as he professes.
In a poll released Tuesday by the liberal firm Public Policy Polling — and obtained early by MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show” — 54 percent of Republican respondents said they believe Obama is a Muslim,while 32 percent were uncertain and 14 percent believed his claims that he is a Christian.
When it comes to Trump supporters, that number of those who believe the president is a Muslim swells to 66 percent while only 12 percent take him at his word that he is a Christian. A whopping 66 percent of Trump’s supporters also believe Obama was not even born in America, according to the poll.
