Americans sour on U.S.-Muslim relations

A new Rasmussen poll shows that only 16 percent of likely voters expect American relations with Muslims to improve. That is down sharply from the 28 percent optimism right after President Obama's speech to the Islamic world from Cairo five months ago.

At that time, only 21 percent expected U.S.-Islamic relations to worsen, but now 33 percent expect it.

Rasmussen notes:

The president's outreach effort to the global Islamic community was one of the primary reasons cited for his winning the Nobel Peace Prize.

Further evidence that one can win a Nobel Prize by talking a good game.
