Returning for its third year, ISPU’s American Muslim Poll surveys Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Protestants, white Evangelicals, and those that consider themselves non-affiliated to compare attitudes across religious groups. We know much has changed over the past year in America and much still remains uncertain. This year, ISPU’s annual poll charts the attitudes and policy preferences that animated this tumultuous period and lays the groundwork for tracking key shifts in the future. American Muslim Poll 2018: Pride and Prejudice takes on this charge while continuing to offer the public, policy makers, and researchers rare depth and breadth of analysis.
This year’s survey also introduces ISPU’s annual Islamophobia Index (II); created in partnership with Georgetown’s Bridge Initiative, the II is a scale that measures anti-Muslim prejudice in America.
