A day after a poll found that one in five Americans think US President Barack Obama is a Muslim, the White House has asserted he is a Christian, who prays every day.

"President Obama is a committed Christian, and his faith is an important part of his daily life,"
White House Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton said.

"He even receives a daily devotional that he uses each morning. The President's Christian faith is a part of who he is, but not a part of what the public or the media is focused on everyday."

Fewer than half of Democrats and African-Americans now say that Obama is Chrisstian according to the Pew poll, which came out earlier this week.
