The End - 2000 to 2009

muslims-approve-obama-more-than-religious-groups

PRINCETON, NJ — Gallup Poll Daily tracking during President Obama’s first 100 days in office finds broad support for him among Americans affiliated with most major U.S. religions. U.S. Muslims and Jews give Obama his highest job approval ratings, at 85% and 79%, respectively. He also receives solid majority support from Roman Catholics (67%) and Protestants (58%), and more approval than disapproval from Mormons.

      Obama is liked by Muslims because he is a man who focuses on solutions, and I’ve always believed that solutions excite people.

      There are many Muslim Shaykhs who, instead of focusing on a solution, point there fingers at the problem, or at each other. There are Shaykhs who do develop solutions, but they’re definitely in the minority.

      It’s sad that the Muslims who have no leadership, and no unity, and no manners, and nothing but slander for each other, have lost trust in eachother and now have their faith in a non-Muslim leader. That’s the state we’re in, and until we become a solution-oriented community, and not an arrogant finger-pointing community, this situation will continue to prevail.

      (But like I said before, there are definitely Muslims out there who are solution-oriented, but they are the minority, and they’re voices need to be louder.)

      -does it matter if his Muslim or not, his just another puppet, like every other US president, he will keep deceiving the American public, Muslim or not we should support the good people in this world regardless of their religion

      Good to see that vast majority of american muslims have their head screwed on the right way.

      Chances are that if your so confident in your standing on the subject of Dajjal and Musa(as), then the chance of you being on the wrong side is very high.

      Something is very, very wrong with American Muslims. God help them!

      Obama can be considered the lesser evil. Everyone is still high off defeating the Republicans. There is still time left to judge Obomba. lol

      At least he’s the lesser evil. lol

      Even if it’s only about him supporting stem cell research. I like him for that.

      Good thing all people are welcome to live in the US. It’s government may never allow a president you will like, but as self-centered as it may sound, any American can and should feel good about Obama and Democrats, knowing that their children will probably be worse off if Republicans keep running the nation.

      I may not have clearly stated it, but I agree that literally there should be no top concern when ultimately international policies still may affect us and currently harm others. It’s just unfortunate that no matter a president seems to be, he has to work along side the government. Democrat Americans also do not love the government because of the reasons you list (despite it not being about Islam) while at the same time having a preference of political party when they’re considering domestic issues. How do Muslims feel about Abortion?

      lol

      Christians are about 50/50 when it comes to choosing Democrat or Republican with varying outcomes due to swing voters too. Certain groups of Americans that aren’t Christian tend to support Democrats more than Republicans. Non-religious and Indian, Chinese, etc. Muslims appear to be one of these groups too. They don’t seem to go for characters like Bush and McCain with the exception of the few who do for financial reasons or like you said about the guy who fortunately lives in Egypt. lol In regards to the article, I am a little surprised at the number of Christians who are honest enough to give Obama credit for anything at all. And I am assuming that the large number of Jews and Muslims that approve of Obama’s job performance are being consistent with their initial support for the Democrat party in general, but more notably, still hopeful about the whole “change” agenda regarding the economy and Iraq. We can only wait for the next poll.

      lol No problem man. I am quite open minded and I understand your comments.. and I am always willing to learn from decent Muslims when I don’t understand their opinions. :) I am sure you’re right about that Iraq. I’m afraid things will get worse between the US, Iran, Iraq and Israel. Either worse or just more of the same.
