Among all immigrants to the United States, the Muslim share also doubled in just ten years, from roughly 5% in 1992 to 10% of all immigrants in 2012. In that year, 100,000 Muslim immigrants entered the country.
Almost half of Muslims living in America, 48%, say that all or most of their close friends are also Muslims, and 69% say religion is very important in their lives.
American Muslims also identify overwhelmingly with the Democratic Party; 70% are sympathetic to the Democrats versus just 11% who say they lean more toward the Republican Party. U.S. Muslims are also favorable to big government, as 68% say they prefer that the government provide “more services.”
Among all religious groups, Muslims tend to be viewed the least favorable by Americans, who view them roughly the same way they view atheists. On the contrary, U.S. citizens view Jews, Catholics, evangelical Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, and Mormons more warmly.
