View full poll

Substantial minorities of Americans admit to having negative feelings or prejudices against people of the Muslim faith, and favor using heightened security measures with Muslims as a way to help prevent terrorism. Personally knowing someone who is Muslim — which 41% of Americans say they do — corresponds with more favorable attitudes on these questions.
