Poll: 10% of American Muslims think Islam should be main source of American law

Islam 0

A new poll by the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding shows that 10% of American Muslims think their religion should be the main source of American law.

Another 27% of American Muslims believe that their religion should be a source of American law but not the only source.

Only 55% of American Muslims said their religion should not be a source of American law.

The poll’s results show that at least 37% – and possibly as high as 45% – of American Muslims believe that their religion should be either the main source or a contributing source of American law.

The results are in general agreement with a poll released by the Center for Security Policy in June 2015 that showed 51% of American Muslims agreeing that “Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to shariah.”

For context, there are currently 3.3 million Muslims in the United States.  If current population trends continue, the United States could be a Muslim-majority nation by mid-century.
