10:30 a.m. — (ELECTION/MUSLIMS) NEWS CONFERENCE — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) holds a news conference to release a new poll of American Muslim voters. CAIR recently commissioned the survey of 1000 registered Muslim voters that asked questions related to demographic profiles, political leanings and levels of social integration. The respondents were randomly drawn from a pool of some 400,000 registered Muslim voters. The survey also asked respondents “whether Muslims worship the same God as Christians and Jews, whether terrorist attacks in other countries harm American Muslims and if the war on terror has become a war on Islam.” Respondents were also asked to rank public policy issues as they relate to the election.
