America has a terrorist problem, not an Islam problem. President Elect Trump has chosen to equate terrorism with a religion, instead of a mindset. People who have hatred in their hearts become and have the propensity to be terrorists. Islam is a religion of peace that has been demonized by ignorant people looking for someone to blame. I believe that many people voted for Trump because of the fear in their hearts that has been instigated by false information and ignorance. I only hope that the truth will become apparent to these individuals before more Muslims become victims of unjust violence.
Good lord no that wasn't the only reason
I didn't vote because I don't live in America
I would say it breaks down something like this. Not exact, but the general idea.
1) A big chunk of people vote strictly by party, either Republican or Democrat.
2) Issues - they voted on some mix of issues
3) Everyone else
3A) Huge anti-Hillary vote - HUGE
3B) Anti-extremist liberal vote - This vote goes beyond the regular liberal vs conservative vote - it's about the off-the-chart totally crazy extremism that's been happening.
I think 3A and 3B are what swung this election. They are what caused very large numbers of people to show up and vote, and swing it opposite to what all the polls were showing.
The people who vote almost entirely on issues and policies are rarely one issue voters. There are some exceptions, but it's usually looking at the big picture. I'd say that there are extremely few people who voted for Trump for just that one issue. I'd be very surprised if it was as much as 1%. It's probably some very small fraction of a percent.
Keep in mind that party voters are really issue voters, but it's the whole package, not just one issue.
As for myself, Islam was not a factor, not even a small factor. I never even considered it. It's not about Islam anyway, it's about terrorism. I think there is little that a president can do other than what's already being done. I don't really expect Trump to do much differently. He'll get briefed on it and receive reports from the same people who are briefing and sending reports now. He might make some tweaks here and there, but I don't expect any major changes.
i didn' vote for him and his lack of experience in foreign affairs. lack of knowledge of history, people, places, and goings on in the middle east plus his hot temperament were specific reasons i didn't think he would be able to adequately handle the issue of terrorism
No, I voted for Trump for more than that. Not that his position on radical Islam wasn't important for me because it was. I also voted for him because of his positions on immigration and trade and the promise he made to put the interests of the American people first were he to be elected.
I did not vote Trump.
I'm just waiting for the guy to crash the economy the way Bush did by fueling another financial bubble. Can't wait for the right moment to short the S&P500
That was part of it.
Trade, debt, and illegals primarily along with getting rid of corruption.
I had a couple of reasons to vote for Trump, one of them is because of gun rights.
I voted for mostly because he wants to stop the free trade with China. My second most important reason is the wall to stop some of the drugs coming into the USA. The people that came here, as long as they didn't commit additional crimes, I would be fine with them paying $5,000 fine and be allowed to stay. But I want as much of the drugs stopped as possible.
My third reason is the Muslim ban.
So, pretty much I want jobs available here, no drugs, and I want it to be safe for people too.
