U.S. Muslims Most Approving of Obama, Mormons Least

Jeffrey M. Jones, Gallup, July 11, 2014

Seventy-two percent of U.S. Muslims approved of the job President Barack Obama was doing as president during the first six months of 2014, higher than any other U.S. religious group Gallup tracks. Mormons were least approving, at 18%. In general, majorities of those in non-Christian religions–including those who do not affiliate with any religion–approved of Obama, while less than a majority of those in the three major Christian religious groups did.


The results are based on aggregated data from more than 88,000 Gallup Daily tracking interviews conducted in the first six months of 2014–a time when the president averaged 43% job approval among all Americans. Gallup interviewed 552 Muslims and at least 1,700 respondents in every other religious group during this time.
