MICHIGAN, Feb. 28, 2024 ~ Over 100,000 Democrat voters made an electoral rebuke against President Joe Biden in Tuesday’s primary election.

While Biden did receive over 80% of the vote, 101,100 voters chose the “uncommitted” option on the ballot as a protest vote against his support of Israel‘s military onslaught on Gaza that killed nearly 30,000 people. The uncommitted vote, spearheaded by the Listen to Michigan campaign, easily trounced its goal of 10,000, with the total near the 154,000 votes Biden beat former President Donald Trump by in 2020.


Feb. 28, 2024 ~ Dearborn and other dense Arab-American communities largely voted uncommitted in Tuesday’s primary election, in opposition to President Joe Biden‘s handling of the war in Gaza. Democrat Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) talks with Guy Gordon, Lloyd Jackson, and Jamie Edmonds about how these votes might fall in the November election.

(CONTINUED) The uncommitted option also topped Biden in the cities of Dearborn and Hamtramck, cities that have high Arab American and Muslim voters. Organizers with Listen to Michigan are now looking at pushing uncommitted campaigns in other upcoming primaries, like Minnesota and Washington.
