Campaign launch against Biden’s 2024 bid

In response to President Joe Biden's stance on Israel and its conflict with Hamas, Muslim communities in the US have initiated a campaign opposing his 2024 re-election bid. This weekend, Muslim leaders from Michigan, Minnesota, Arizona, Wisconsin, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, and Pennsylvania convened in Dearborn, Michigan, to start this movement. The campaign's statement criticizes Biden for not advocating a cease-fire to protect lives in Palestine and Israel.

Strategic focus on swing states

According to Axios, this dissent among Arab American and Muslim American communities could impact Biden’s chances in key 2024 swing states that he won in 2020. The campaign leaders plan to focus their efforts in these states, coordinating among Muslim community leaders to ensure Biden's defeat.

Social media campaign and long-term implications

Organizer Jaylani Hussein stated that the #AbandonBiden campaign will initially concentrate on social media. He acknowledged the challenges of not supporting Biden and the potential long-term effects on the community. "We understand the difficulties ahead in the next four years, but this gives us a chance to recalibrate. The Democrats will have to consider if they want our votes," Hussein said.

Impact of Muslim-Arab voters

Axios underscored the influence of Muslim-Arab voters in these states, noting that even a modest shift in Muslim voter allegiance away from Biden could pose significant challenges for the Democrats in these pivotal states, reflecting on the 2020 election outcomes.
