CAIR: Almost Three Times More Muslims Voted for Trump Than for Romney
by Jason Devaney
Almost three times as many Muslims voted for Donald Trump in this presidential election than they did for fellow Republican Mitt Romney four years ago.
According to an exit poll conducted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, 13 percent of Muslims voted for Trump and 74 percent voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton. In 2012, President Barack Obama received 85.7 percent of the Muslim vote and Romney received 4.4 percent.
During his campaign, Trump talked about temporary stopping the flow of Muslims entering the United States until a better screening process could be put in place over terrorism fears. That idea ruffled the feathers of many Democrats and even some Republicans.
