The Drudge Report trumpeted a poll finding that President Barack Obama enjoys a high approval rating among Muslims on its homepage Friday.
The conservative aggregator linked to a Politico article on a newly released Gallup poll, which found that 72 percent of Muslims approved of the job Obama was doing in the first six months of 2014.
That’s more than any other religious group by a large margin: Obama’s job approval was lowest among Catholics at 44 percent, Protestants or other Christians at 37 percent and Mormons at just 18 percent, according to the survey. Gallup noted that the Obama’s job approval breakdown by religious group has remained consistent throughout his presidency, however.
