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.

This year’s survey also includes ISPU’s second Islamophobia Index (II), created in partnership with Georgetown’s The Bridge Initiative. Building on previous research, we use the II to examine and tease out factors that predict and prevent Islamophobia.

On May 1,Dahlia Mogahed will present the findings of the survey followed by a lively discussion with an esteemed panel of guests. Moderator Mehdi Hasan will facilitate our panel, which includes Prof. John Esposito, Walter Ruby, and Prof. Ibram Kendi. Following the panel, there will be an opportunity for Q&A from the audience.
