Recent polls indicate a significant dip in his approval ratings, with the leading Republican candidate, former President Donald Trump, outperforming him in direct comparisons.
The situation appears to have worsened for Biden, as a new group has emerged, pledging to do everything in their power to ensure his defeat. Muslim American leaders from nine swing states have formed a coalition in response to Biden's handling of the Israeli-Hamas conflict, vowing to prevent his re-election.
The newly formed #AbandonBiden National Coalition announced their intentions at a conference held at a Hampton Inn in Dearborn, Michigan. "We are announcing today that President Biden has lost the 2024 election," declared organizer Jaylai Hussein.
The coalition comprises representatives from Muslim communities in Arizona, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. These nine states, with their substantial Muslim minorities, could potentially determine the outcome of Biden's re-election bid, according to the coalition's organizers.
The coalition's discontent stems from Biden's perceived failure to advocate for a ceasefire to safeguard Gaza's citizens. They pledged to "guarantee Biden's loss." Organizer Hassan Shibly of Florida stated, “We cannot allow Genocide Joe to have another term in office.” The coalition hinted at the possibility of supporting a third-party candidate, a move that could potentially tip the election in favor of the Republicans.
Prior to this announcement, a nationwide poll conducted by the Arab American Institute revealed that Biden was losing favor with Arab-American voters. A mere 17% of Arab Americans surveyed indicated they would vote for Biden in 2024, a stark contrast to the 59% who claimed to have supported him in 2020. This marked the first time in the AAI's 26-year polling history that less than half of Arab American voters expressed support for the Democratic Party.
Biden's challenges don't end there. Reports suggest he is also losing support among black and young voters, demographics traditionally more inclined to vote Democratic.
Ironically, Biden may also be losing Jewish votes due to his perceived leniency towards Iran prior to the war, which some believe may have exacerbated the situation. Furthermore, the anti-Israel stance of the left-wing faction known as 'The Squad' and their involvement in anti-Israel protests nationwide have raised concerns. Observers worry about the radical left's influence on these issues, which could deter potential Democratic voters and further damage Biden's chances at the polls.
Adding to Biden's woes are those who refuse to vote for him due to his age, perceived incoherence, and the impact of his policies on the economy. With all these factors combined, it raises the question: who will be left to vote for Biden in 2024?
