Arab American Institute to Release Survey on Arab American Vote in 2012

Washington, DC – On Thursday, September 27 2012, AAI will release the findings of its recently conducted poll on the Arab American vote, a key constituency in important swing states in this election. AAI will also make available data from similar surveys conducted over the past decade on the Arab American vote.

Dr. James Zogby said:

“A significant number of Arab American votes are up for grabs in this election. As our data going back to the 1990s has shown, this is a population that votes in higher numbers than the general public. Our data shows substantive changes since the last presidential election poll in 2008. And Arab Americans represent sizable populations in a number of key swing states including Florida, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Virginia—the places where the national campaigns are focusing their resources."

Copies of the poll will become available on AAI's website Thursday at 11am.

Press interested in attending the briefing should RSVP to Omar Tewfik at (202) 652-4988.
