Poll: A majority of Americans say Muslims face 'a lot' of discrimination
by Abigail Hauslohner and Scott Clement
Eighty-two percent of the American public says that Muslims in the United States face discrimination, with a majority saying that they face "a lot" of it, according to a new survey by the Pew Research Center.
Pew conducted its survey of 1,502 adults from Nov. 30 to Dec. 5, a few weeks after the election of Donald Trump, whom civil rights groups have repeatedly criticized for making inflammatory statements about minority groups, particularly Muslims.
Trump called during his campaign for a ban on Muslim immigrants and a database to register Muslims. He has also suggested that Muslims in America are aware of and shielding terrorists in their midst and that Muslim refugees constitute a "Trojan Horse," secretly armed with dangerous ideology.
