68% Muslim to vote for Obama
At least 25% of American Muslim registered voters were undecided about who to vote for in this November’s presidential election, according to a survey released on October 24. The survey also indicates that 91% of registered Muslim voters will go to the polls on
November 6. The random survey of 500 registered Muslim voters was conducted in the first two weeks of October. It was held by
an independent research firm on behalf of the Washington based Council on American- Islamic Relations (CAIR), a leading American Muslim civil advocacy group.
68% of the survey respondents said they will vote to re-elect President Obama. Only 7% said they will vote for Mitt Romney. American Muslims tilt toward the Democratic Party was reflected when more than 100 Muslim delegates representing some 20 states attended the Democratic convention in Charlotte, N.C., in September last. That’s up from 25 delegates in 2004.
