Those seeking the White House in 2008 may want to take note of an increasingly active and growing group of voters - American Muslims.

Muslims are now viewed as potential swing-voters in key battleground states such as Florida, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

For example, more than 60 Muslim get-out-the-vote volunteers in an Ohio election center called 25,000 phone numbers of registered Muslim voters in that state in the two weeks preceding the 2004 election.
