About 5,900 current U.S. service members self-identify as Muslim.By Katherine Biek | March 30, 2016
A new poll shows some voters don't think Muslims should be allowed to serve in the U.S. military.
While Public Policy Polling found just under half of Republican voters thought Muslims should be allowed to serve, it also found 32 percent of the 505 Republican voters it sampled said Muslims shouldn't be in the military. The other 19 percent responded: "not sure."
The majority of those in favor were John Kasich supporters. Donald Trump and Ted Cruz voters were less willing to see Muslims serve.
