Sunni [[Muslim]]s typically denounce Taqqiya as hypocrisy.{{fact}}
Many people believe that [[Barack Obama]] is a Muslim using Taqiyya as a means to justify to himself publicly denying his faith. A survey in March 2008 by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press found that ten percent of American voters believe Sen. Barack Obama is Muslim. 16% of conservative Republicans, 16% of white evangelical Protestants and 19% of rural Americans believe the Illinois senator and President-elect is Muslim. <ref>USA Today, ''Poll: 1 in 10 think Obama is Muslim'', Posted 4/1/2008, by Daniel Burke, Religion News Service, retrieved 10/16/2008.[http://www.usatoday.com/news/religion/2008-04-01-obama-muslim_N.htm]</ref> In a later survey, in July 2008, the number had risen to 12% of American voters who think Obama is a Muslim. Interestingly, 37% of those who think he's Muslim intend intended to vote for him. <ref>Pew Research Center, ''12% - Still Think Obama is Muslim'', retrieved 10/16/08[http://pewresearch.org/databank/dailynumber/?NumberID=509]</ref>
