Survey: Almost 50% of Americans Say No to Mosques Near Them

Almost half of Americans would feel uncomfortable with a mosque in their neighborhood, according to a recent poll conducted by Chapman University in California.

The third annual survey of American fears polled 1,511 Americans about what they feared most.

Some 41 percent of respondents said they feared a terrorist attack on the nation, the thing Americans feared the second most, after government corruption (60.6%). “Roughly one third” responded that “Muslims are more likely to be terrorists and that the Muslim immigration should be banned,” according to The Orange County Register.
