Survey of one billion muslims

The Gallup surveying company is conducting perhaps the biggest survey of muslim opinion ever: "the study will reflect the views of more than one billion Muslims in nearly 40 countries, about 90 percent of the world’s Muslim population".

Read the article and the illustration covering the preliminary findings. It's got some really interesting nuances, like what people think about the US's stated aims to promote democracy (hint: muslims don't seem to be convinced) and what they admire most about the West. Also very interesting is the difference of opinion between moderates and extremists, which turns up some surprises.
