95% of Muslims Voted

There is hope for the Republican party - 95% of African American Vote, 56% of Women Vote, 83% of Jewish Vote , ~78% of Hindu Vote and now 85% of Muslim vote goes Democratic. Thank God it is not Zero! No one is against the Republican Party, but the party spokesperson are!

The Republican Party leadership needs to drop the bellicose, belligerent attitudes towards minorities for survival, and I hope they do it because, it the right thing to do, if you fake it, it will show up. Some loose ass Republican or the other is going to speak up... and the silence of  majority will affirm that all of them are like that. Which is not true.

It is a good party, and I have stuck with it, and am willing to coach and guide the party to a 2016 Victory, if not, we have to sit on the side lines for 16 years - Obama and Hilary combined.

Poll: 85 Percent of Muslim Voters Picked President Obama

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 11/9/2012) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today released the results of an informal exit poll indicating that more than 85 percent of American Muslim voters picked President Obama in Tuesday’s election.

[NOTE: A similar CAIR exit poll in 2008 showed that 89 percent of American Muslim voters picked then-candidate Barack Obama. Two percent of respondents said they voted for Sen. John McCain.]

CAIR’s email survey of more than 650 American Muslim voters indicates that just four percent of respondents cast their ballots for Mitt Romney.

Poll findings:
• 95.5 of the Muslim voters said they went to the polls on November 6.
• 85.7 percent cast their ballots to re-elect President Obama.
• 4.4 percent of respondents said they voted for Mitt Romney.
• Just over two percent (2.2) of respondents said they voted for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. The same percentage (2.2) of respondents said they voted for Green Party candidate Jill Stein. 

{NOTE: More than four percent of respondents declined to say who they voted for.]
• 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. 

• Of those who voted, 8.3 percent said they did so for the first time. 

• 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,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. “Muslim voters in swing states such as Florida, Virginia and Ohio seemed to have played a critical role in tipping the balance in the president’s re-election victory.”

These results support the findings of a pre-election CAIR survey of 500 Muslim voters that rated jobs and the economy, education, health care policy, Medicare and Social Security, and civil rights as the top issues. That survey indicated that 1 in 4 Muslim voters remained undecided about their presidential pick.

“It appears that undecided Muslim voters broke decisively in President Obama’s favor at the polls,” said CAIR National Legislative Director Corey Saylor.

Saylor also expressed appreciation that a number of anti-Muslim candidates were rejected by voters nationwide.
