US 'uncommitted' vote over Gaza gains traction in Minnesota primary

While US president Joe Biden easily won the Minnesota Democratic primary on Tuesday, the surprise weight of the "uncommitted" protest vote over Biden's strong support for Israel was shown as almost 20 percent of Democratic voters chose this option, or over 45,000 votes.

The voters endorsing this choice included Muslim Americans, students, suburban women and liberal Jewish activists according to Edison Research.

This follows the Michigan primary last week, where over 100,000 Democratic voters chose "uncommitted" on their ballot, or 13 percent of the vote.
