Carson has said he would require any Muslim candidate for the presidency to address the question of sharia and explicitly renounce any belief in it. After such repudiation Carson would be quite willing to support a Muslim candidate. I suspect that most Americans, once made aware of the foregoing facts, would feel that way, including many Muslims.
