Bernie Sanders Leads in CAIR NJ Poll
It was a beautiful day in Jackson NJ as thousands of Muslims from the Tri-State area enjoyed a day of sport and family fun at Six Flags Great Adventure. The annual event, which is hosted by ICNA New Jersey features Halal food and congregational prayers, and was by any measure a great success.
Many purveyors of Islamic clothing, scented oils and books, as well as Non-Profit organizations lined the thoroughfares. CAIR New Jersey sponsored a booth that offered attendees a chance to register to vote and to participate in an informal poll of presidential candidates. Not surprisingly the majority of Muslims polled at the park chose Democratic candidates.ÂÂÂ What may be surprising is that amongst the Democratic candidates, the polling revealed a split similar to what polls in New Hampshire and Iowa have revealed:ÂÂÂ Bernie Sanders had close to a double digit lead over Hillary Clinton
The complete results are as follows:
Bernie Sanders – 42%
Hillary Clinton – 33%
None of the above – 14%
Rand Paul – 5%
Donald Trump – 3%
Chris Christie– 3%

New Important Info: Since the terrorists attacks of 9/11, Muslims Sikhs, Arabs and South Asians have endured particular scutiny by law enforcement -- and in some cases, questioning and searches that infringe fundamental rights at the core of the Constitution. In this climate, it is important that members of our communities inform themselves about our rights as Americans.
