Despite rhetoric, Trump backed by some Arab-American Muslims
by Nicole Gaudiano
Donald Trump's support among Arab-American Muslims in this country is low, but not as low as you might think.
Despite controversial comments like Trump's call last year for "a total and complete shutdown" of Muslims entering the United States, 12% of Arab-American Muslims said they'd vote for the GOP nominee, according to a recent Zogby Analytics survey. Sixty-seven percent said they'd vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Trump's support was higher among Arab-American Catholics (20% for him and 63% for Clinton) and Protestants and other Christians (48% for him and 42% for Clinton), according to the survey of 502 Arab Americans, scheduled for release Tuesday.
