US President Donald Trump’s standing is lowest among Muslims and Jews out of all the religious groups in America, according to a new survey released this week.

As voters prepare for the Nov. 3 presidential election, Trump had the support of just 30 percent of American Muslims and 34 percent of American Jews, the poll released by the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU) — a US Muslim research organization — revealed.

However, the poll noted that support for Trump among Muslims had nevertheless doubled during 2020, while his support among Jews remained static.

The poll included a “nationally representative sample of 1,015 Americans, plus 801 Muslim American respondents and 351 Jewish American respondents.”
