Americans see rise in religious discrimination of Jews and Evangelical Christians in U.S.

18 May, 2019

In a March 2019 Pew Research Center survey, 50 percent or more of U.S. adults say that Muslims (82%), Jews (64%) and Evangelical Christians (50%) face some or a lot of discrimination in our society. This is a significant increase since 2016 for Jews and Christians when fewer than half surveyed said Jews (44%) and Christians (42%) faced discrimination. Perceptions of high levels of discrimination against Muslims remained unchanged from 2016.
