    In the United States, the denominational vote determines the identity of the tenant of the White House. Muslims with American nationality perfectly assimilated this local situation and largely voted in favor of Joe Biden.

    According to an exit poll conducted by The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), 69 percent of voters in this community chose the Democratic candidate against only 17 percent for Republican Donald Trump.

    The gap between the two men is massive, but the outgoing president however managed to do better, compared to the 13 percent of votes gleaned during the November 2016 ballot. It is a significant advance despite his hostile positions regarding the arrival of Muslims on American territory, his so-called “Muslium ban”. This ban was a presidential decree, signed on January 27, 2017, a week after his inauguration, which prohibited nationals of six Muslim countries from entering the United States: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Sudan and Yemen. The measure was presented by the Trump administration as necessary to combat terrorism.

    During the election campaign, Joe Biden promised to revise “this infamous ban on Muslims”, as he called it last July. While waiting for this repeal of the “Muslim ban”, it is clear that Biden’s outstretched hand to members of this community has paid off for him.

    Indeed, the Democrat did not hesitate, in July 2020, to respond to the invitation of Emgage Action, an NGO which defends the rights of Muslims in the United States. In a speech delivered to an audience of participants, he denounced Islamophobia and pledged to integrate Muslims into his administration and make Islam known in school curricula.

    “I wish we would teach more about the Muslim faith in our schools (…) What people don’t realize is that we all come from the same root, in terms of our core beliefs.”

    In particular, The Los Angeles Times daily took an interest in the Muslim vote in favor of Biden’s candidacy. “After their new voices resonate loudly in state-level battles like Michigan and Pennsylvania, Muslim voters want more than just a seat at the table of Biden and his administration. Like other under-represented communities, they want to be involved in decision-making at the national level,” the newspaper noted.

    According to the Pew Research Center, there were approximately 3,45 million Muslims of all ages living in the United States in 2017, representing about 1,1 percent of the American population.

    Jewish voters too favored Joe Biden over US President Donald Trump with 77 percent casting their ballots for the Democrat. Only 21 percent favored Trump in a US national poll, according to the Times of Israel.

    The poll by GBAO Strategies for J Street, showed greater Jewish support for Biden than for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
