Fear of Muslims Is Strong Predictor of Support for Trump

Public opinion surveyed in the weeks before the San Bernardino, Calif., attack show that those voters who believe Muslims are dangerous have especially favourable views of Donald Trump.

What is somewhat more surprising is how Republican voters have efficiently sorted themselves on this issue among the many Republican candidates running for the nomination.

His call is unlikely to offend his strongest supporters, and in fact may have been an appeal to the pre-existing attitudes of his core constituency.   »»» The New York Times
