    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - More American Muslims are now supporting the Democratic Party but their votes should not be taken for granted, an Islamic civil rights group said on Tuesday.

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, released a poll of 1,000 registered Muslim voters in the United States it said showed the community has changed a great deal since supporting Republicans in 2000.

    The poll found 42 percent of respondents were Democrats and 17 percent Republican, while some 28 percent had no party affiliation, said CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad.

    "It shows that Muslim community votes should not be taken for granted," said Awad, adding: "There's a shift in their political orientation."

    Of the 42% that were Democrats, 46% support the Hammas wing of the Democratic Party & 28% support the Hezzbollah wing.
