Democrats' 'alternate facts' on mistreatment of Muslims

Talk about 'alternate facts.' A Rasmussen poll finds that most Democrats believe that Muslims in the United States are worse off than Christians in Muslim countries.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 62% of Likely U.S. Voters believe most Christians living in the Islamic world are treated unfairly because of their religion. Just 17% disagree, while 21% more are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) 
By comparison, 39% feel most Muslims living in the United States are treated unfairly because of their religion. That’s up from 31% last year and is the highest finding in surveys to date.  A plurality (46%) still believes Muslims are not treated unfairly because of their faith, while 15% more are not sure.
Fifty-six percent (56%) of Democrats, however, believe most Muslims in this country are mistreated, a view shared by only 22% of Republicans and 39% of voters not affiliated with either major party. Fewer Democrats (47%) think most Christians are mistreated in the Islamic world, compared to 76% of GOP voters and 64% of unaffiliateds.
And for those who think women are smarter... they're not - at least when they're Democrats.
Women are more likely than men to think most American Muslims are mistreated here but less likely to believe Christians are mistreated in the Islamic world.

By the way, note that no one talks about mistreatment of Jews despite study after study that shows that attacks on Jews due to their religion far exceed attacks on persons of any other religion.

I personally know a number of incredibly decent folk -- ordinary Church-going culturally-conservative Americans -- who suddenly begin regurgitating inane low-information blather when certain subjects come up.

It is like with the Far Left, differing only in the percentages. Both bases WANT to believe, and no rational argument will penetrate.

I could never write a blog like this, Carl. I'm trying to convince myself to keep my real-world mouth shut.

Pre-Boomer Marine Brat,

The only reasons I can write a blog like this are (a) I live in a neighborhood where most people don't know what a blog is, and (b) I still have some semblance of anonymity despite the fact that many readers know my real identity.

Over the last several months, the posting has gotten much lighter (posting varies inversely with the amount of work I have, so for my family, that's a good thing), and that has enabled some people to 'forget' who I am in real life.
