via Shifting Demographics Mean More Muslims Than Jews In US

The United States has begun to experience a demographic shift that has been taking the rest of the developed world by storm: the surge in Muslim populations through both immigration and procreation.

Recent studies from Pew Research Center’s Fact Tank put the number of Muslims in the US at 3.35 million, which accounts for roughly 1% of the total population.

Bolstered by increased immigration from conflict zones, such as Iraq, Pakistan, Iran, Bangladesh and Syria, but primarily due to substantially higher fertility rates in Muslim communities, the Muslim population is projected to increase from 1.5% to 2.1% of the US population by the year 2050.
