Middle Eastern Americans and Party Affiliation

Holst-Grubbe, Peter; Smith, Raymond Arthur

I discuss how the term "Middle Eastern American" does not connote a singular political entity in the American political system. I also convey an underlying issue with "Middle Eastern American" as a definitive group in the American political landscape, as well as the shift in party affiliation in the early 21st century among Arab Americans.
