On January 18, 2002, The Denver Post published an article about a poll of U.S. Muslims conducted by Project MAPS at Georgetown University. It reported, "Half of American Muslims earn more than $50,000 a year, 58 percent are college graduates, and 36 percent were born in the U.S., according to what may be the most exhaustive poll ever done of American Muslims. ... A majority, 57 percent, said the opinions of Americans toward Muslims and Arabs since Sept. 11 has been unfavorable, but only 8 percent said that Americans have been disrespectful and intolerant of them in general."
