Politics & Religion

A new Gallup poll is reporting that Muslim give Obama the highest approval ratings of all the major religions here in the U.S..

"The differences in Obama's approval ratings across the religious groups included in this analysis have held fairly constant across time, even as Obama's overall rating has fallen by 15 points between the first half of 2009 and the first seven months of this year. American Muslims -- in the news recently with the controversy over proposed plans to build an Islamic center and mosque near ground zero in New York City -- have given Obama his highest ratings in all three time periods: 86% in the first half of 2009, 83% in the second half of 2009, and 78% so far this year. Mormons have given Obama his lowest ratings across time, dropping from 43% in the first half of 2009 to 24% this year.

In addition to Muslims, Obama receives above-average ratings among Jews, those who identify with other non-Christian religious groups, and those with no formal religious identity. Obama gets lower-than-average ratings among Protestants. Catholics have given Obama slightly higher-than-average ratings last year and so far this year.

Obama has lost slightly more ground than average so far among Mormons, and has lost the least among Muslims." (source

I understand why Muslims would rate the President high and Mormons would rate him low. What I have a lot of trouble understanding is why Catholics and Jews would rate him high. President Obama is the most FAR LEFT President when it comes to ABORTION. I'm talking rated 100% by NOW And NARAL. Is it because there is a Catholic-Union correlation? And Obama has the worst ISRAEL policy...yet he still enjoys high approval ratings from the Jewish community...? Why?
