Although a clear majority of American Muslims voted for Joe Biden, a substantial proportion still cast a ballot for Donald Trump. What explains this seemingly surprising result, which was replicated to varying degrees among several other minority groups? Dr. Youssef Chouhoud will highlight how racial/ethnic diversity, ideological heterodoxy, and generational splits can shed light on the recent past and near future of the American Muslim vote.

Youssef Chouhoud is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Christopher Newport University, where he directs the minor in Human Rights and Conflict Resolution. His research in the US and the Middle East probes support for core democratic norms among understudied groups and contexts. Prior to joining CNU, Dr. Chouhoud was a Provost’s Fellow at the University of Southern California, where he received his Ph.D.
