American Muslim Voters With Nowhere to Go
by Francis Wilkinson
Hillary Clinton will win overwhelming support from American Muslims in November. She is a safe harbor in a domestic political environment roiled by Donald Trump's direct assaults against them. But for many Muslims, who make up about 1 percent of the U.S. population, a vote for her constitutes a difficult compromise.
"A lot of people in our community are not thrilled about Hillary Clinton because of her foreign policy record in the Muslim world," said Dawud Walid, executive director of the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. "But more people are scared of the wolf than of the fox, even though both can eat your chickens. There are people volunteering in the Hillary Clinton campaign."
