US Muslim vote: 'Mild' enthusiasm for Obama
For the next two weeks until Election Day, pundits will speculate about Barack Obama and Mitt Romney's varying abilities to woo the elderly vote, the military vote, the Hispanic vote, the Jewish vote, the woman vote, the black vote, the white vote, the student vote, the small business owner vote and a slew of others.
