James Zogby: Arab American Voters 'Overwhelmingly' Support Obama
Newsmax ^ | September 27, 2012 | Jim Meyers and Kathleen Walter

Prominent Middle East expert Dr. James Zogby tells Newsmax that President Obama is polling about 18 percent below his 2008 numbers among Arab-American voters.

But those Arab-Americans who are Muslims now “overwhelmingly” support the Democratic candidate compared to four years ago, he adds.

Zogby also discloses that Arab-Americans across the board consider jobs and the economy as the most important issue in this year’s elections.

Zogby is founder and president of the Arab American Institute, a Washington, D.C.–based organization that serves as a political and policy research arm of the Arab-American community, and author of the book “Arab Voices: What They Are Saying to Us and Why it Matters.”

The Arab American Institute and JZ Analytics has just polled Arab-American voters in the key swing states of Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Virginia, and found that they favor Obama over Mitt Romney by a margin of 52 percent to 28 percent....

Arabs have become the newest voter base for RATS

I have a hunch Arab immigration quotas have been, or soon will be, increased.

"Zogby having a Duh! Moment."

I worked with a Zogby cousin, and took a course once, many years ago from John Zogby. Neither of them was in the business they're in now. The family's heritage is Lebanese, and as far as I know, they're Catholic. Their cousin was a funny $hit, and from talking with him, he believed that James was in a world of his own. The cousin left me with the impression that James never cared much about his ethnic background until he discovered he could make a lot of money from it.

Well of course. They, too, like having a black Muslim already in the White House.

Let's look back at the Muslim vote in Virginia in 2006!
***

"Did Muslim Vote In Virginia Swing Senate Control?" (Nov 2006)

'The Detroit Free Press reports Muslims played a critical role in the November midterm elections.'

Imam Mahdy Bray, Speaking at a Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America convention in Dearborn, highlighted the effective effort to turn out Muslim voters in Virginia:

The effort was so organized that Muslim taxi drivers in northern Virginia took the day off to ferry Muslims to the polls, said Imam Mahdy Bray, a speaker at the convention. Volunteers also made phone calls to Muslims in Virginia to urge them to vote, he said.

As a result, Democrat James Webb ousted incumbent Republican George Allen by about 9,000 votes in a race in which 50,000 Muslims went to the polls -- 47,000 of them voting for Webb, Bray said.

For my money Senator Allen gets all the credit for running a losing campaign. Nevertheless, if 96 percent of Muslims are going to vote Democratic, that would make them a more reliable Democratic constituency than African Americans. Democrats consistently receive only about 90 percent of African American votes.

” - - - Arab-Americans who are Muslims now “overwhelmingly” support the Democratic candidate compared to four years ago - - - “

Who would have thought that Obama’s “eye-candy” remark on “The View” would have such wide voter appeal ? Okay, other than Axelrod, Holder and Jarrett.
