How likely were American Muslims to participate in the midterm elections? Does a candidate’s support for the "Muslim ban" help or hurt their run for office? How has Islamophobia changed over the past tumultuous year, and how can it be addressed?

ISPU's fourth annual poll surveys Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Protestants, white Evangelicals, and the non-affiliated to inform national conversations with the voices of everyday Americans.
