Islam may become 2nd-largest US religion

The Muslim population is growing, and in the next two decades Muslims could become the second-largest religious group in the United States, according to a Pew Research study.

The Pew Research Center combined studies they conducted in 2007, 2011 and 2017 with yearly data from the US Census (which does not track religious affiliation) to put together a portrait of the future of Muslims in America.
According to their data, the Muslim population is growing at an accelerated rate, and will more than double from an estimated 3.45 million in 2017 to an estimated 8.1 million in 2050.

The Muslim population in America is expected to rise considerably in the US as more and more Muslims make their homes and families here.
In the meantime, Muslims are expected to surpass Jews as the second-largest religious group. But even with the population boom, Christianity is far and away the predominant religious group in the US, followed by those who identify with no religion at all.
