Only a third of voters think relations with Islamic countries will improve over the next year


With surprising democratic election turmoil in Iran just days after President Obama’s outreach to Muslims in a speech in Egypt, U.S. voters are slightly more conflicted about America’s relationship with the Muslim world.

.hmmessage P { margin:0px; padding:0px } body.hmmessage { font-size: 10pt; font-family:Verdana } A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey, taken just before the election protests broke out in Iran this week, finds that 32% of voters now think that relationship will get better in the next year, although 28% say things will get worse in that time period.

At the beginning of the month just before the president’s speech in Cairo, 28% of voters said the U.S. relationship with the Muslim world would be better a year from now, while 21% expected it to worsen.

The biggest change is in the number who expect the relationship to remain about the same. Thirty-five percent (35%) feel that way now, down from 45% two weeks ago.
