Americans Skeptical Of Muslim World

Many campaign supporters of Barack Obama hoped that, as president, he could bridge the gap between Americans and the Muslim world, which many see as distrustful of America; as he travels to the Middle East later today, some are speculating about his ability to do so. A CNN poll today, meanwhile, finds that 46 percent of Americans hold an unfavorable view of the Muslim world, while three in ten are neutral and one in five see the Muslim world favorable. Interestingly enough, unfavorable opinions have increased since 2002.
