89 Percent of Muslim Voters Picked Obama

Ninety-five percent of respondents said they voted in the presidential election, whether at the polls or by absentee ballot. This is the highest American Muslim voter turnout ever reported.

Of those who voted, almost 14 percent said they did so for the first time.

One-fourth of respondents said they volunteered for or donated money to a political campaign in this election.

American Muslim voters are increasingly identifying themselves with the Democratic Party. More than two-thirds said they consider themselves Democrats. Most of the rest, or 29 percent, still consider themselves independent. Only four percent said they are Republicans.

Simple math :

Yes, 64M people voted for Obama (including the muslim vote), but that's far from a landslide or mandate.

According to the US Census, there are 246 million Americans who are above the status of suffrage in the USA. That means

246 million people are eligible to vote

(excludes convicted felons, children, illegals, etc). Of those 246M people,

approx 130M people voted

in this election. That means

116M people DID NOT vote.

That translates to

53% voted and 47% did not.

Of those that voted,

64.1M voted for Barrack Obama,

and

65.9M voted for someone else,

and

116M didn't vote at all.

Why didn't they vote? Well, we really don't know, but it could be that they did not like any of the candidates. So , if they did not vote for either candidate, we can presume that

65.9M + 116M or 181.9 people DID NOT vote for Obama.

So what more does that tell us? That tells us that

26% of the population voted for Obama,

27% voted for someone else,

and

47% didn't vote at all.

Now I don't know where you went to school, but where I went to school,

26% is less that 27%,

and

if you factor the no votes in,

26% is far less than 74%.

So they next time a dolt tells you that Obama won by a land slide, ask them how they describe a landslide and educate them in some simple math.
