Islam

"Islam" and related terms ("Muslim", "Islamic") have been used a total of 9 times by the politicians and political influencers that NPR is tracking.

Why We're Tracking This: Like "sharia" and "mosque," the name of one of the world's largest religions has taken on increasingly political tones in the United States as some conservatives have warned it's a threat to American culture and liberals have said that's fear-mongering.
