    "While the poll revealed that prejudice toward Muslims is widespread, respect for other religions traditions remains sturdy. Respondents held the Jewish faith in the highest regard, with 75% professing to hold a favorable impression-just slightly higher than attitudes toward Protestants and Catholics. Fifty-seven percent say they have a favorable view of the Mormon faith, compared to 44% for Muslims.

    ...many Americans harbor lingering animosity toward Muslims. Twenty-eight percent of voters do not believe Muslims should be eligible to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. Nearly one third of the country thinks adherents of Islam should be barred from running for President — slightly higher than the 24% who mistakenly believe that the current occupant of the Oval Office is himself a Muslim. In all, just 47% of respondents believe Obama is a Christian; 24% declined to respond to the question or said they were unsure, and 5% believe he is neither Christian nor Muslim."

    That's just the " Chosen" choosing themselves, once again.

    The poll, conducted by ABT SRBI, surveyed 1,002 adults — 89% of whom identified themselves as likely voters — on Aug. 16-17.

    So, how did they manage to poll only Jewish likely voters?

    Of course it is!

    Because if you don't respect it, you are considered an anti-semite.

    It's a vague question, Political Chic. Admire the religion? The leaders? The tenets? The adherents?

    Too bad I wasn't polled, I would have put Evangelicals and Buddhist above Judaism.

    Link to 'only Jews answer surveys'?

    Why do I get the feeling that no one ever calls you?

    I checked the dictionary and didn't find that definition under 'Anti-semite'...
