Five years ago, when we were at STATS, Howard Fienberg and I wrote a piece for the Christian Science Monitor that asked how many Muslims there were in America. We reviewed the evidence and came to the conclusion that there were about 2 million. For this, CAIR called us anti-Semitic, as it claimed there were 7-8 million.
Now, a new, exhaustive study from the Pew Research Center has asked the same question, and concludes there are about 2.35 million Muslims in America.
Story of my life.
While I am still toiling in the think tank trenches, Howard has had the good sense to get out. He is now Director of Government Affairs at CMOR, the Center for Market Opinion and Research.
