More Than 500,000 Democratic Voters Protest Biden’s Support of Gaza Slaughter

Voters have cast ballots for 'uncommitted' in primaries across the country

More than half a million people have cast protest votes against President Biden’s support for the Israeli slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza in Democratic primaries across the country.

According to The Nation, 530,502 people voted “uncommitted” or “uninstructed” where it’s available on the ballot. The movement started in Michigan, a significant swing state, where over 100,000 people voted “uncommitted.”

Last week, 48,091 votes were cast for “uninstructed” in the Wisconsin primary. The turnout far exceeded organizers’ expectations, as their goal was to secure 20,682, the margin of victory for Biden in Wisconsin for the 2020 election.

The opposition to Biden was strongest in the area of Wisconsin where University of Wisconsin–Madison students reside, historically a Democratic stronghold. In that area, 30% of voters cast ballots for “uncommitted,” something Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) called “a big, f**king deal.”

The campaign has caused fear among Democratic strategists that Biden’s support for Israel’s genocidal war, which has killed over 33,000 Palestinians, will cost him come November. President Biden’s campaign events have also been frequently interrupted with protesters calling him “genocide Joe” for his support for the Israeli campaign.
