Seventy-two percent of poll respondents who identify their religion as Muslim say they approve of U.S. President Barack Obama's performance. Muslims, more than any other religious group approve of Obama's overall performance in a recent Gallup Poll.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - According to a poll released this week. In tracking responses for the first six months of 2014, 72 percent of Muslims said they approve of the president, compared with just 20 percent in the group that disapprove.
Of all the religious groups polled, Mormons were the least approving. Eighteen percent of the Mormons surveyed, 78 percent disapproved of the president. Mormons in the past have ranked as the most conservative major religious group in the U.S.
Obama has always been more popular among non-Christians and less popular among Christians. The Gallup poll underscores a religious divide when it comes to presidential approval.
Those who classify as "Other non-Christian" gave the president a 59 percent approval rating. Jewish Americans gave Obama a 55 percent approval rating and atheists or those who subscribe to no religion have a 54 percent approval rating.
Catholics, it was learned, have only a 44 percent approval rating of Obama, compared with 51 percent disapproval. Protestants and other Christians are more critical, with 37 percent approving and 58 percent disapproving.
The findings are coincide with Gallup results on religious groups' approval ratings of Obama since the beginning of his presidency. The relative rank of the groups have not changed in the six years Obama has been in office. It must be noted that President Obama's approval rating in every group for the past six months has dropped five to seven points from the average of his entire presidency.
Gallup reported that Obama's overall approval rating for the past six months is 43 percent.
The survey was conducted from the months of January and June of this year, with a random sample of 88,801 adults from all 50 states and Washington, D.C. The margin for error for the entire sample is plus-or-minus one point - though that number is higher for some of the individual religion samples.
