A survey, released by the Council on American-Islamic Relations shows that Muslim voters remained fully engaged with the political process.
Muslim community leaders interpret this as indicating a strong desire among Muslims to integrate in the American society. They also link this to the events of Sept 11, 2001, which created widespread biases against the Muslims in America, causing the community to make a concentrated effort to stay engaged with other Americans and to play an active role in local politics.
