CNS News; CAIR Poll: More Than 85% Of American-Muslims Picked Obama

CNS News Reports results of CAIR poll:

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) released the results of an informal exit poll on Friday that shows more than 85 percent of American Muslim voters picked President Barack Obama in Tuesday’s election. 

That number is lower than a similar poll conducted in 2008 that showed 89 percent of American Muslims cast a ballot for Obama.

CAIR conducted the informal survey of 650 American Muslim voters, with just 4 percent of respondents stating that they voted for Mitt Romney.

Poll findings:

  • 95.5 percent of the Muslim voters said they went to the polls on Nov. 6.
  • 85.7 percent cast their ballots to re-elect President Obama.
  • 4.4 percent of respondents said they voted for Mitt Romney.
  • States with the highest number of survey respondents (in descending order) were California, New York, Texas, Virginia, Illinois, Florida, Michigan, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Ohio.
  • 41.5 percent said they consider themselves Democrats. A similar number, 40.6 percent, consider themselves politically independent. Only 7.4 percent said they are Republican.

“The fact that more than 95 percent of Muslim respondents went to the polls is a clear indication that they are fully participating in our nation’s political process and are part of the fabric of America,” Nihad Awad, executive director of CAIR said in a press release announcing the poll results.

Just imagine if 95% of the rest of America had voted–Dex
