Where Arab Votes Could be Crucial

Arab-Americans are throwing their support behind Barack Obama. And in a tight nationwide race, according to a poll released in Washington today, the votes of Arab-Americans could give a boost in the key swings states like Michigan to Obama over John McCain. It’s not the «ethnic vote» you might imagine, however. Arab-Americans are voting the pocket book issues like most other Americans are. They’re not voting in a bloc because of Middle East-related issues.

The Zogby International poll for the Arab-American Institute shows that during the Bush presidency Arab-Americans have swung more decisively behind the Democratic Party in general. The respondents overall gave Bush a 76% negative job approval rating, with even those identifying themselves as Republicans registering only a 63%-37% positive-negative rating for the incumbent president. Compared to the year Bush was elected in 2000, when the Democratic-Republican ID breakdown was almost even at 40%-38%, Arab-Americans now identify with the Democratic Party by a margin of more than 2-1. Forty-six percent called themselves Democrats, while only 20% said they were Republicans.

In a two-way race, Obama beats McCain 54% to 33%, but Obama’s advantage slips if independent Ralph Nader, who is of Lebanese ancestry, and Libertarian Bob Barr, are in the contest: Obama 46%, McCain 32%, Nader 6% and Barr 1%. Nader bites into Obama’s support
