Barack Obama London, Apr. 3 (ANI): One in ten Americans still think Barack Obama is Muslim.

According to The Telegraph, nearly one in five white evangelical Protestants and 17 per cent of the Republicans who took part in the telephone poll of 1,308 adults, which was conducted by Pew Research from March 9-12, said they thought Obama was Muslim.

Fewer than half in each group - 38 per cent of white evangelicals and 46 percent of Republicans - correctly identified him as Christian.

Even among Democrats, only 55 per cent correctly identified Obama as a Christian; seven percent thought he was Muslim.

Only six per cent of university graduates said they thought he was a Muslim - less than half the 14 per cent of respondents with no more than a high school education who said the same. (ANI)
