Since shortly after Hamas’ October 7 terrorist attack against Israel, we’ve been hearing a great deal about the price President Joe Biden will pay for his embrace of the Jewish state.
The first warning signs came from Arab-American voters, who make up a considerable bloc in swing-state Michigan. One poll showed Biden getting only 16 percent of the Arab-Muslim vote in a state he would almost certainly need to win again to retain the White House.
And this week, a new survey from NBC News puts Biden not only at the lowest approval rating of his presidency, but trailing his most likely general election opponent, former President Donald Trump.
Biden’s decline mostly comes not from disenchanted swing voters, but from within his own party. Within that party, he struggles most among younger Democrats, the most progressive—and most critical of Israel—faction.
