Since last November Republican Presidential hopefuls have been throwing a lot of hate at Muslims and Islam. Most Republican voters take a dim view of both Islam and the people who practice it, but a series of national polls shows Democratic and Independent voters keep feeling better about both. University of Maryland Pollster Shibley Telhami says his results have surprised him. Even after the mass murderer in Orlando told police he followed the Islamic State, most Americans rejected him and –Telhami’s latest poll shows – accepted Muslims and Islam even more.
