Read this post from Scott Macleod in Time’s Middle East blog about the Arab American Vote in the American Presidential elections 2008. It is very important. The Arab American Vote can make difference in Michigan, Florida, Ohio,Pennsylvania and Virginia where 30% of the Arab American population concentrates especially in Michigan .Most of them prefer Obama over McCain according to latest Zogby International poll for the Arab-American Institute,it is very interesting poll.
You can find the poll here.
It is very interesting to know that the Arab American voters are more interested in economic policies of the future President like the rest of the Americans unlike the Jewish lobby that cares only for the Foreign policies towards Israel and the Middle East.
The Muslim Arab Americans prefer Obama where as the Catholic Arab Americans prefer McCain and do not ask me why !! I used to know from relatives in America that for years the Muslim Arab Americans preferred the Republicans for their moral values especially regarding gays , it is enough that that they voted for the G.W Bush in the first term and since then they regret it.
This poll shows that the Arab Americans can form some sort of power in the elections by time if they can organize themselves.
Now to all Arab Americans
Do not Vote for McCain
Think again if you are going to .. if you care about the economy of the States then look to the latest financial Crisis in the end of Bush Era , this is Republican rule financial policies.
