Americans' Dim Views Of Islam Have Gotten A Little Worse
Anti-Islamic sentiments are widespread in the U.S., and have intensified slightly this year, a new HuffPost/YouGov survey shows.
Since the Paris terror attacks in November, at least 52 anti-Islamic incidents have been recorded in Canada and the U.S. -- including a severed pig's being head thrown outside a Philadelphia mosque, a brutal attack against a Muslim store owner in New York and passengers of "Middle Eastern descent" being removed from more than one flight after fellow travelers claimed they looked suspicious.
The recent terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California -- and Republican front-runner Donald Trump's subsequent call for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States" -- further stoked worries about rising Islamophobia.
