Trump support among Muslims towers over GOP
Donald Trump has more support among Muslim voters than all his Republican opponents combined.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations – a group named by the Department of Justice as an unindicted co-conspirator in a terror-financing case – conducted a six-state survey Jan. 26 of 2,000 Muslim voters. The billionaire netted 7.47 percent support among Muslims. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz came in second place with 2 percent.
“Trump has endorsed a national registry of Muslims and suggested banning them from entering the country – even, perhaps, Muslim Americans who have been traveling abroad,” CAIR said on its Facebook page on Monday. “That makes the finding of a new survey of Muslim voters particularly remarkable: Incredibly, he’s third in the race, and top among Republican contenders.”
