The guardian.co.uk reports on a survey done by the Pew Research Centre which discovered that one in five Americans believe that Barack Obama is a Muslim, despite his public statements about his Christian faith. Even more strangely, the study found that 18% now say that the US president is a Muslim, up from 11% in March 2009; meanwhile, only about one-third of adults (34%) say Obama is a Christian, down sharply from 48%, while forty three percent say they do not know Obama's religion.
