Watching the daily news coverage of the 2020 election campaigns, it’s common to hear about the Jewish, evangelical, black, Hispanic, rural, or women’s vote. But the Muslim vote? Rarely. There are signs that might soon be changing.

“It doesn’t take much to notice that the entire country, politically, has changed,” says Hussam Ayloush, Executive director at CAIR – Los Angeles Chapter and Executive Board Member at California Democratic Party.

“They [the president and his administration] have used Muslims and other minorities as punching bags. Muslims feel they need to be more engaged.

“He’s made our job of mobilising Muslims a lot easier,” Ayloush adds.
