CAIR-Ohio: Muslims Voted For Democrats

CAIR-OHIO: MUSLIM VOTERS VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS

(COLUMBUS, OH 11/10/06)- An informal poll of Muslim voters, conducted by the Columbus office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Ohio) indicated that the overwhelming majority of Muslim voters in that state voted for Democrats in Tuesday’s mid-term elections.

Seventy-five Muslim voters from Ohio responded to a post-election survey. More than 90 percent of the respondents said they had voted for Democratic Party candidates. A recent CAIR poll of Muslim voters nationwide indicated that American Muslims are leaning toward the Democratic Party.

In the weeks leading up to the election, CAIR-Ohio launched a “Get Out the Vote” campaign that included phone calls to more than 1,000 registered Muslim voters in Ohio.
