WASHINGTON — Arab-Americans, once considered a political swing group, are now solidly Democratic, according to a poll released Monday.

The survey found that the controversy over the proposed New York mosque and community center reinforced Arab-Americans' Democratic leanings because many critics of the plan were Republicans.
