Which Muslims Voted for Trump?

In our most recent poll, ISPU found that 13 percent of American Muslims approve of the way that Donald Trump is handling his job as president. While this percentage is significantly lower than the president’s approval among the general public, it still leads us to ask: Who, exactly, are the Muslims that support Trump?

Let’s Help Journalists Cover American Muslims Fairly

Studies show that media coverage of Islam and Muslims is overwhelmingly negative. We’re sharing our data with the journalists who have the power to make a difference—but we need your help. Give to our GlobalGiving campaign today to help arm journalists with facts.
