Democrats Think Muslims Worse Off Here Than Christians Are In Muslim World
A new poll from Rasmussen Reports shows that the Democrats hold some very interesting beliefs regarding Christian persecution and Islamic persecution. Rasmussen says that even though most voters in the U.S. agree that Christians are persecuted in Muslim-majority countries that Democrats think that Muslims are more likely to be mistreated here in the U.S. than Christians are likely to be persecuted in Muslim-majority countries.

From Rasmussen Reports:
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 62% of Likely U.S. Voters believe most Christians living in the Islamic world are treated unfairly because of their religion. Just 17% disagree, while 21% more are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
By comparison, 39% feel most Muslims living in the United States are treated unfairly because of their religion. That’s up from 31% last year and is the highest finding in surveys to date. A plurality (46% ) still believes Muslims are not treated unfairly because of their faith, while 15% more are not sure.
Fifty-six percent (56% ) of Democrats, however, believe most Muslims in this country are mistreated, a view shared by only 22% of Republicans and 39% of voters not affiliated with either major party. Fewer Democrats (47% ) think most Christians are mistreated in the Islamic world, compared to 76% of GOP voters and 64% of unaffiliateds.
This poll comes on the heels of a CBS Poll that The Gateway Pundit reported on yesterday that shows that 66% of Democrats believe Islam is just as violent as all other religions.
