Biden’s 2020 margin over Trump in Michigan was 150,000 votes. The Uncommitted vote in the Democratic Presidential Primary was 13% of the total. Michigan’s Arab-American population is 2%.



Dearborn, MI | www.adc.org | February 28, 2024 – Over 100,000 people voted for uncommitted in the Michigan Democratic Presidential Primary yesterday. This record breaking total for the uncommitted option sent a loud and clear message to the Democratic Party and the Biden Campaign – it is time to take action to end the genocide in Gaza. Over 100,000 people voted for uncommitted in the Michigan Democratic Presidential Primary. Uncommitted voters represent diverse demographics, including young voters, progressive voters, and a significant number of voters from ally communities.

ADC National Executive Director Abed Ayoub said, “We want to thank the Listen 2 Michigan campaign and coalition, including the Truth Project. These results would not have been possible without the commitment from our partners. Yesterday our community reclaimed its electoral power in Michigan. The majority of Americans do not support the continued US complicity in the active genocide of Palestinians, and this will be reflective at the ballot box on election day. It is time for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire, stopping of military aid to Israel, and an immediate measure to provide much needed humanitarian aid to those in Gaza.

In early February, ADC, partnering with the Truth Project, launched efforts alongside Listen to Michigan to educate voters about the campaign. In under three weeks those efforts led to the activation of over 500,000 voters across southeast Michigan, resulting in what we saw tonight. This impressive showing is a result of a disciplined approach to voter engagement and a testament to the deep opposition to the Biden Administration’s complicity in genocide.

ADC efforts are funded by the community, and for the community. Your support is crucial in continuing this work and ensuring the organization has the resources needed to continue this important work in other states. Take a moment and make a contribution to ADC by clicking here.
