Poll: More Americans Want to Protect Christians Than Muslims

According to a new AP/NORC poll, Americans place a higher priority on protecting the religious liberty of Christians than other religious groups, with Muslims ranking at the bottom. While the survey found an overwhelming majority believe it either "extremely" or "very important" to uphold religious freedom, the numbers dwindled when asked about specific religious groups: 82 percent said Christians deserve protection versus just 61 percent for Muslims.
