Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, in an interview with Sean Hannity last night, clarified his statement that he would not support a Muslim candidate for president.

Carson explained that he would support a Muslim commander-in-chief as long as that person rejected the radical "tenets" of Islam, such as Sharia law.

But what do Americans think about the possibility of a Muslim president? John Stossel took to the streets of New York City to find out. 

Watch Stossel talk to the folks and discuss with Bill O'Reilly in "The Factor" clip above.
