A Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) survey, released February 1, finds that behind Hillary Clinton ( 51.6%) and Bernie Sanders (22%), the third most popular candidate among Muslim voters is Donald Trump with 7.4%.
CAIR, the nation’s largest so-called Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization surveyed registered Muslim voters in California, New York, Illinois, Florida, Texas, and Virginia – the states with the highest Muslim populations. Other interesting findings from CAIR's survey include:
- Islamophobia the most important issue to Muslim Voters in the 2016 presidential election.
- Most Muslim voters -- 74%, intend to vote in the presidential election.
- Most Muslim voters -- 67% support the Democrats' party in the the 2016 presidential primaries.
The Muslim voters' support for the Democrats' Party shows that all their pandering to Muslim Americans is paying off. But how do you explain the Donald being Muslim voters' third most presidential candidate after his call for a "total and complete shutdown" of the country’s borders to Muslims in the wake of the San Bernardino terrorist attack.
