Growing Uncommitted Votes Across Super Tuesday Primaries Signal Demand for Pro-Peace Leadership. Our Revolution Expands Efforts Urging Voters to Vote Uncommitted in Upcoming Presidential Primaries

Results in Minnesota, North Carolina, Massachusetts and elsewhere make plainly clear, in order for Democrats to defeat Donald Trump in November, Biden must realign with his voter base and listen to the diverse, progressive voices urging him to change course in Gaza.

Washington, DC As the final results from last night’s presidential primaries across multiple states on Super Tuesday are tallied, Our Revolution, America’s largest grassroots progressive political organizing group, is extremely encouraged by the strong outpouring of grassroots support and progressive activism witnessed in voting booths across the nation. 

From Michigan to North Carolina, voters have sent a resounding message demanding change and prioritizing peace and justice in U.S. foreign policy.

In Minnesota, where Hillary Clinton narrowly edged out Donald Trump by less than 2% in 2016, nearly 19% of Democrats voted “uncommitted,” totaling nearly 46,000 votes and counting. Similarly, in North Carolina, where Trump narrowly defeated Biden by less than 2% in 2020, over 13% of Democrats expressed “no preference,” surpassing 88,000 votes. On Super Tuesday, more than 255,000 individuals cast protest votes, amplifying the growing call for peace.

The recent Michigan primary saw over 101,000 Democratic voters choose “uncommitted” over Biden, in a state Trump barely won by 11,000 votes in 2016. This resounding support for the Uncommitted option is a clear indication that voters are demanding a departure from the status quo and a shift towards a more compassionate and principled approach to international relations.

Our Revolution’s Pro-Peace Voting Bloc is sending a powerful wake-up call to President Biden: To defeat Trump in November, Biden must reengage with the progressive coalition that secured his victory in 2020. This entails putting an end to unconditional support for Netanyahu’s war and brokering an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

The movement must continue to sound the alarm and keep up the pressure for peace. That’s why Our Revolution is mobilizing its 132,000 members in Washington state to vote “Uncommitted” and send another message for peace on Tuesday.

Our Revolution Executive Director, Joseph Geervarghese stated, “The surge of uncommitted votes underscores the growing dissatisfaction with the current trajectory of U.S. foreign policy, particularly in regard to the ongoing crisis in Gaza. It’s imperative that President Biden listens to the voices of the people and takes decisive action to prioritize peace and justice. Until then, Our Revolution remains committed to mobilizing our grassroots members to advocate for policies that reflect the values and aspirations of the American people.”
