CAIR Poll: More Than 85% of American-Muslims Picked Obama
CNS News ^ | Nov. 9, 2012 | Penny Starr

Posted on 11/09/2012 5:35:58 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

(CNSNews.com) -- The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) released the results of an informal exit poll on Friday that shows more than 85 percent of American Muslim voters picked President Barack Obama in Tuesday's election.

That number is lower than a similar poll conducted in 2008 that showed 89 percent of American Muslims cast a ballot for Obama.

CAIR conducted the informal survey of 650 American Muslim voters, with just 4 percent of respondents stating that they voted for Mitt Romney.

Poll findings:

95.5 percent of the Muslim voters said they went to the polls on Nov. 6. 85.7 percent cast their ballots to re-elect President Obama. 4.4 percent of respondents said they voted for Mitt Romney.

True, about 4.4% of Muslims, are really at heart Muslims who believe that the traditional view of marriage is the right one. HOW COULD A MUSLIM who believe in the Koran vote for a person who promotes abortion and same sex marriages. HYPROCRITES...ALL OF THEM.

They’re still behind in the stupid race. The Blacks had a 97% vote for their god, and some places had more than 100%, proving that Obama can raise the dead.

For crying out loud - he’s one of them! Why on earth wouldn’t they?

So, it’s conservative America on one side, and muslims, blacks, hispanics, handout recipients, the poverty hucksters and the dumbed-down younger generation on the other.

It’s hard to imagine America struggling its way back. I am still in disbelief.

Without googling, I bet at least 75% of Jews voted for the marxist muzzie messiah.

Isn’t it amazing how all these demographics that hate each other, all unite to screw conservatives? Blacks hate Hispanics, Hispanics hate blacks, Asians hate everyone, Muslims hate gays and non-Muslims,etc... yet they all come together to vote the same way.

Sad to say, you’ve summed up the genious of the Democrat party. Hypocrisy legitimatized. You think evil doers like Axelrod don’t laugh about this fact privately?

The ironic part is that some of their voting bases, are diametrically opposed to each other. Muslims want to eradicate homosexuals, but homosexuals will vote for Obama, because they believe he will deliver them gay marriage. Muslim influence continues to grow in this country, so what do homosexuals think is going to happen? Do they pay attention to the Middle East?

BS. These people are illegal too. Most of them most likely didn’t leave their homes or countries to vote.

Don’t let Obama take his second term

Which proves you can take Muslims out of the 8th Century, but you can’t take the 8th Century out of Muslims. A little piece of the third world in America.

HYPROCRITES...ALL OF THEM""""".......

rofl, well yes of course they are Hyprocites..all of them. It's in their book, ok to lie to an infidel when it is for their religious purposes.

See how they work,just like the Democrats, Progressives, Liberals. But hey, the "VOTERS" decided they wanted a Muslim Brother for President, they didn't want Satan, rofl, and many, many are very proud to have cast their vote against Romney.

I've noticed that, but as long as each gets their piece of the time along the way, that's all that matters.

Then they go out in the streets and fight over the other ones piece of pie.

This seems to indicate that nearly all Muslims are homosexuals. So it’s not just their leader Mo-ham-head Ooo Eeh Oo Ah Ah Ting Tang Walla Walla Bing Bang, or whatever they call him.

Leading Conservatives to Call for Sharia Law

Following the news from CAIR today that some arbitrarily high but thoroughly believable percentage of Muslims did not vote for Republicans, Sean Hannity, the Wall Street Journal Editorial Page and the usual endless stream of Bush family operatives called on the Republican Party to become more inclusive by embracing Sharia Law.

"If only the ORCA system had been more targeted toward Islamic voters, we could have seen the deluge of Muslim votes turning the tide against us," said Steve Schmidt, just one of several completely clueless (read: Republican) consultants whose job was to micro-target specific minorities, whose common thread is a deep and abiding hatred of a country that's made their prosperity possible.

"We'd have done much better with these groups if we simply gave these folks what they wanted, whatever it might be." Said Paul Gigot, "the Constitution is a very musty old document that nobody reads any more. I mean, come ON -- clearly not even the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court has read the damn thing! Why are we letting the rule of law stand in the way of things that Americans, people who want to be Americans, and people who want American jobs without being Americans, want? It's time to be inclusive. And our electoral percentage might rise as high as 10% with a few of these groups if we give them everything they're demanding. Hell, we might even get 11% with some of them."

Sean Hannity could not be reached for comments, but his voice mail left a nice summary of the Republican Party's current talking points. Meanwhile, Ann Coulter blamed the whole fiasco, strangely enough, on incumbency. "Look, the truth is that Americans don't throw incumbents out, and Muslims are no exception. They never did throw out the Ayatollah Khomeini. He just died right in the office. In fact, I think he might have been dead for a while by the looks of him. But the point is," she went on, blithely ignoring the fact that no Democrat except Bill Clinton had been reelected since World War II, "that Muslims don't like change. Once we get our guy in, they'll start voting for us, just like the Jews and the Blacks do. Speaking of Blacks, did you know I wrote a new book about them, yep..." at that point Ms Coulter's mike had to be physically prized from her hands, though she had nothing more to add to the Muslim question and continued to shill for her book.

Romney himself is said to have been "shell shocked" by the news that Muslims did not vote based on the economy, anymore than did any other minority, including Jews, Blacks, Asians, Latinos, Catholics, Single Women, ...

Contacted about the shattering loss of Muslims in his basement office hardwired to FRee Republic, Fred Zarguna, the only conservative who didn't seem interested in what Muslims thought one way or the other remarked:

I wish we could have a moratorium on all of this stupid stuff, and that no one would comment for at least a month on why we "really" lost the election. "Thinking" with your gall bladder is no way to do a proper postmortem analysis. My gawd, you jump to conclusions often enough and pretty soon you've got a "thought process" that's no better than Frank Luntz'.

This is so true. Remember all of that nonsense of black pastors going against 0bama because of “gay marriage”?

Lies. Just lies. They were all a huge part of the scam, it’s no wonder the Won had the conference call with black pastors including G-Damn America Wright to “convince”

blacks to come back. Just a big lie and head fake. The same head fake as the “depressed base”. That trick won’t work next time.

I just had a Muslim say this and i agree with him.
"By the way communism and socialism is closer to the word of Allah than capitalism whom demands that all of the means of production be under the controul of the government and proceeds be divided out equitably and fairly. Allah to be praised! "

Theocracy and Socialism is are two peas in a pod. That is why the left in my opinion embraces Islam.

The US is a secular capitalist republic.

Islamists, socialists, and globalists all have their reasons to want to subvert and destabilize it.

And they all like Obama.

A certain percentage of every religion voted for Obama. Including whatever religion you consider yourself, including atheist or agnostic. By your logic, that makes virtually every believer or non believer ‘parallel to Muslims’. Which is obvious nonsense. What you are really about is hate. So your natural enemy is those that do their best to be about love.

Yeah and you are all about love I take it?

Yes a certain percentage of every religion voted Obama, true. But those “other non-Christian religion” (plus the atheist or agnostic) don’t make up any significant numbers. Obama didn’t win in NV,CO,NM,VA,PA,OH,FL because of votes from Zoroastrians, Hare Krishnas or Bahia’s. 8 millions evangelists who last time voted for McCain, did not show up for the polls. They chose to sell their souls to the devil then vote a Mormon. Try to face the reality rather then attempting to put a spin on numbers and throw some clichés. You are only fooling yourself.

Your original post did not say, “8 million Evangelical Christians are parallel to Muslims”. You took the opportunity to carpet bomb ALL Evangelicals based on the actions of a few. Why? Because you truly believe that all Evangelicals are ‘parallel to Muslims’? I doubt it. You wrote it because deep down you have some grievance with God and consequently those who truly follow him. And yes, I try my best to be about love. In this case I’d call it tough love. Have a good day.

Tough love. Lol. You make me laugh. Keep your love to yourself. I get plenty of it already. Save your love for your God Obama. And please, enough with the sensitivity crap already. We generalized the actions of a few all the time with every religion and ethnicity. We do it all the time to everyone else. Welcome to the unfair world. And isn't that what this thread is about.....generalization? Oh yeah I know, other ethnicities are fair game. I know your kind and your selective morality and selective sensitivity. So save it!

And grievance with God. So now evangelicals are the Gods huh? God's own golden poop? Speaking against them is speaking against God right. I like how your kind can so easily and so shamelessly pimp the name of God and play the piety card. Good job! Even Satan can't do it so well.

Btw why dont you direct your fire at those who should have voted for Romney but chose not to vote because he is a Mormon? Why do you play apologist for them. It kinda show your true colors.

The founder of this site, Jim Robinson, screamed from the rooftops about how under no circumstances would he vote for Romney. You're brave when making nasty attacks on entire groups based on the actions of a few. Here you have a specific man who did exactly what has you fuming. Walk the walk coward and specifically say what you think of Jim Robinson based on him not voting for Romney.

Tell me who is the real coward, first trying to hide behind God and now Jim Robinson? Who are you going to drag into this debate next? Jesus?

You know you are a real weasel@$$ wise guy.
