Frontline recently compiled a range of statistics about American Muslims, and found that an overwhelming 78 percent of them voted Republican in the 2000 presidential election, with only a thin sliver voting Democratic. Since 9/11, those numbers have flipped: The percentage of American Muslims who “lean toward the GOP” is just 11 percent.
About Hispanic-Latino voters, I believe Newt Gingrich said something like "They look like us [on paper], but they don't look like us." Vis-a-vis the Democratic party, he continued with something like "They look like them, but they don't look like them [on paper]." Maybe the same is being said of Muslims in the U.S.
Wait. So the mulsims living in america aren't citizens? or is it something that we just arent too sure about....
No, you read it wrong. My reply was to Ordie and how Muslim voters in the US are Americans. I assume, and certainly hope they are. But without some way to prove voters, of any color, creed or religion are indeed citizens, and eligible to vote, it is certainly not always a true statement that voters are Americans, or technically eligible to vote. Efforts to have such a system to guarantee that only legal citizens do vote, seems to get bowled over as racist, etc..
