The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)–an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror financing trial, and a designated terror organization in the United Arab Emirates–conducted a poll of 2000 Muslim voters throughout six Super Tuesday states. The results, released Wednesday, were surprising.

While Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders earned 46% and 25% support, respectively, Donald Trump has the support of 11% of Muslims, more than the rest of the GOP field combined.

Marco Rubio comes in second with 4%, Ted Cruz wins 2%, John Kasich just 1%.

Among Republican Muslims, their number one concern is the economy (38%), followed by Islamophobia (14%), health care (12%), and foreign policy (10%).

Democrat Muslims are primarily concerned with Islamophobia (27%), followed by the economy (19%), health care (13%), foreign policy (12%), and civil liberties (10%).

A full 67% of the Muslims polled are Democrats; 18% are Republicans; 10% declined to answer.
