The Political, Social, and Religious Attitudes of Muslim Americans

Received: Accepted: Published: 2015-10-20



Muslim Americans are an increasingly important community in the United States and, as a result, numerous scholarly attempts have been made to map members of this community, particularly with respect to their religious, social and political attitudes. We provide a summary of findings thus far by reporting the results of three surveys of the Muslim American community. These are the 2006 survey conducted by the Pew Research Center, the 2004 survey conducted by Zogby International, and the 2006 Mosque Survey of Muslim Americans. Despite differences in the sampling methods used by these three surveys, the mapping of political, religious, and social attitudes of members of this community is similar across the three surveys.
