I’m Muslim so I grew up around Muslim communities. Overall Muslims are pretty conservative. If it wasn’t for islamaphobia a majority of Muslims would probably vote republican.
So how come republicans haven’t targeted this audience.
I was questioning my parents and a couple of family friends about their voting behaviors. One specific question I asked was would they vote differently if they were in Somalia(we are all Somali and all of them were born and raised their). They literally would vote opposite. Like here in the states they mostly vote for democratic positions in government but if we had all moved to Somalia they would be really conservative. They don’t like illegal immigration since all the ones I spoke to came here legallly and waited years to come. They are against abortion, against homosexuality,Somalis I realized were 50/50 on guns.i know Arabs, Pakistanis, and other religous Muslim Americans that are pretty conservative. There are a lot of conservatives here in Muslim communities.
They were all pretty conservative but mostly voted for the democrat party because of fear of the islamaphobia that comes with conservative groups that vote republican.
