I would certainly be skeptical, so he got to convince me he is telling me his true intentions.
The opponent is absolutely in the equation. For instance, do I think the opponent is qualified. For instance if I had the choice between a Muslim Jon Huntsman against Nancy Pelosi, then the choice would be easy. But if the muslim candidate is worse and the democrat candidate is better, then it would be a more difficult choice.also the opponent isnt in the equation
its qualified person who happens to be Muslim.
Another factor is Israel. I think it is important that US support Israel, and I have met very few Muslims who do not dislike Israel.
You can choose to not include it in the poll, but it is still important for me.2.) no because its my op and my question and not part of it
I just choose to not respond to the poll.

Politicians lie. I need to know that the Muslim nominee really support Israel, that he really believes in freedom of speech and that he does not sympathize with countries like Iran. I have reasons to be skeptical.

2.) dont know if they didnt vote for him solely based on religion though they would be bigots
3.) yes they would if he was QUALIFIED but if they didnt based solely on religion then they too would be bigots
4.) blacks in south africa have no concern to me or meaning to this discussion or change the fact that your thought process is extremely ignorant and bigoted
there are many whites blacks asians Latinos women, men, christians, muslims, catholics, jews etc that do plenty of messed up stuff in this country ad others that would never make me judge all of them because thats stupid.
IIMO its also very telling that you picked picked "liberals" and "blacks" for you examples, shows your biased also
ALL americans if they are smart should be worried about any extreme religious candidate, the religion doesnt matter its more because if he is to religious then he wouldnt be a qualified candidate. . DO you disagree with that?
That is a political institution problem. No abrahamic religion has ever been the slightest interested in the concept of human rights. Human rights is a political product of the enlightenment which managed to tame the particular abrahamic religion in the west..)No, it is only Islam. It is based on what is happening in Muslim countries where people lack basic rights. Yes, there are countries who are not Muslim where they lack basic rights, but it is not based on religion.
Only if I am convinced he is a solid secularist.
If I have any doubts about it, I wouldn't vote for him.
