America's silent majority

Here's good news for Israel: The average American - who is not a loud mouthed liberal - is not being taken in by Muslim propaganda.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 17% of Likely U.S. Voters believe that most Muslims in America are treated unfairly because of their religion and ethnicity. Sixty-three percent (63%) disagree and say they are not treated unfairly while 20% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

A plurality (49%) of liberal voters, however, says there is bias against Muslim Americans. Eighty-one percent (81%) of conservatives and 57% of moderates disagree.

But only 10% of all voters think American Muslims are speaking out enough against potential terrorist attacks in the United States. Fifty-seven percent (57%) disagree and say they are not speaking out enough. One-in-three voters (34%) are not sure.

Those figures are similar to those found in a survey of all adults in September 2009. At that time, 15% believed that Muslims in this country were speaking out and 46% said they were not.
That means that there are an awful lot of people out there who believe that there is bias against Muslims but it's not unfair. Hmmm.

Make sure you read the whole thing. The contrast between what he calls the 'political class' and 'mainstream America' is stunning. Here's hoping mainstream America throws the political class out in 2012.
