Democratic Voters Voice Dismay over Biden’s Support for Israeli Assault on Gaza

HeadlineMar 20, 2024

Joe Biden and Trump won all of their races Tuesday, but there continue to be signs that many voters are not happy with their party’s presumptive nominees. In Arizona, over 18% of Republicans chose Nikki Haley over Trump, even though she has already dropped out of the race. Meanwhile, in Kansas, more than 10% of Democrats selected “none of the names shown” instead of Biden. In Illinois, some Democrats, including Ibrahim Rashid, said they stayed home instead of voting for Biden.

Ibrahim Rashid: “I actually canvassed for Biden in 2020. I was really involved with the South Asians for Biden movement, bringing out South Asian young Muslims and others to come out to vote for Biden in 2020. And I’m planning on sitting out the election because I am just horrified at Biden’s stance on Israel-Palestine. I’m of the view that, you know, we delivered Biden his majority, and he is failing us as young progressive voters. So, right now I’m going to say, 'No ceasefire, no votes.'”
