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.”
