What to expect from the Muslim vote

Oct 23, 2012

As part of our ongoing series with New America Media exploring the ethnic vote, today we discuss how American Muslims may vote this year. We spoke with Javed Ali, editor-in-chief of Newark-based award-winning Muslim affairs publication, Illume Magazine.

JAVED ALI: American Muslims are feeling a bit disenfranchised. They're not so enthusiastic about President Obama like the last time. The drone strikes have intensified, Guantanamo hasn't been closed yet, so they feel that President Obama has let them down. But we've also seen that there's a rise in the level of engagement both online and offline.
