Muslim Voters Name Civil Rights as Key Election Issue as Electorate Turns Away From GOP: Survey
by Chris Fuchs
With just weeks to go before the general election, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton enjoys strong support from registered Muslim voters, most of whom say they feel the Republican party is unfriendly toward them, according to a new survey released Thursday.
The nationwide telephone poll of 804 Muslim-American registered voters, commissioned by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) found that 72 percent of those surveyed intend to vote for Clinton, while just four percent said the same of Republican nominee Donald Trump.
Three in five Muslims also said they believe the Democratic party was friendly toward them while 37 percent said it was neutral, according to the survey. By contrast, less than one in 10 felt the same way about the GOP, though 31 percent said the party was neutral, the poll showed.
