By a show of hands... The Fox News Republican focus group that says it doesn't trust Obama 'because he's a Muslim'

Nearly half of the members in a focus group of Republicans put together by Fox News say they don't trust President Barack Obama's response to the Egypt crisis because they believe he's a Muslim.
The Iowa-based group were asked by influential Republican 'message guru' Frank Luntz for their views on Mr Obama's pre-Super Bowl interview with Fox News's Bill O'Reilly.The meeting with the focus group was broadcast on Sean Hannity’s programme Monday night.
After a question by Mr O'Reilly about the Muslim Brotherhood's role in forming a government in Egypt, Mr Luntz asked why they all seemed to have such a negative reaction to Obama's answers.
One woman said she believed the president’s religious convictions guide his policies. When asked to clarify, she said, 'I believe that he is a Muslim.....'When Luntz asked the rest of the group how many believed Obama is Muslim, about a dozen, or nearly half, raised their hands.

Question of faith:
Some Iowan Republican fail to believe that Obama is a Christian 'Now do you understand the implications of what you’re saying here?' Mr Luntz asked. 'What the media’s going to say about this group and about the Iowa Caucus voters in the future. Do you realise what you’re opening up here?

I saw that and was surprised. Obama is certainly a Muslim sympathizer.
