Why is President Trump’s order to temporarily halt immigration from seven primarily Muslim countries so controversial? A shocking new CBS poll offers insight: Fully two-thirds of Democrats believe Islam breeds no more violence than any other faith.
As Breitbart reports, “Merely one-in-seven Democrats believe that Islam is more violent than other religions, such as Christianity, Mormonism, Judaism, and Buddhism. One-in-ten Democrats believe that Islam is less violent that other religions, according to the poll of 1,019 adults, which was taken Feb. 1 and Feb. 2.”
“In contrast, Republicans have a far colder view of Islam. Sixty-three percent of Republicans view Islam as aggressive compared to other religions, and only two percent view Islam as more pacific than other faiths,” Breitbart continued.
Here’s a snapshot from the CBS poll:
Shockingly, Breitbart also informs, “Still, 25 percent of Republican voters believe Islam’s encouragement of violence is level with Christianity’s doctrines, including the Beatitudes passage, reported by Matthew: ‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.’”
While mainstream-media polls don’t have a perfect track record for accuracy, it’s folly to think the above doesn’t reflect a largely uninformed, and misinformed, populace.
