Colorado Democrats Launch “Noncommitted” Protest Vote Against Biden in State’s Primary

As the Super Tuesday primaries draw nearer, another Democratic state is seeing significant opposition to Joe Biden’s re-election bid in the form of a protest vote for the “Noncommitted” option.

As Axios reports, a group of Democratic voters in the state of Colorado are organizing a campaign to vote “noncommitted” rather than vote for Biden, the party’s presumptive nominee, due to dissatisfaction with his handling of certain progressive issues such as global warming, student loan debt, and the war in Israel.

The “Vote Noncommitted Colorado” campaign was announced on Wednesday by the Colorado Palestine Coalition and the Democratic Socialists of America, in response to the successful similar effort in Michigan’s primary, where 100,000 Democrats – approximately 13% of the primary vote in that state – voted “Uncommitted” in a stunning blow for Biden.

“We figured if there’s a way to make some waves and let our discontent be known, we might as well,” said organizer Grace Thorvilson.

However, the effort is not expected to be as successful as Michigan’s effort, due to the Colorado campaign being announced with just six days to go before the primary, whereas Michigan’s campaign was much more well-organized weeks in advance. Another key factor in the success of the Michigan “uncommitted” campaign was the state’s high population of Muslims and Arabs, which opposes Biden’s handling of the war in Israel.

Mail-in voting began weeks ago in Colorado, with over 762,000 ballots already cast as of Wednesday. In-person voting will take place on Tuesday, March 5th, as part of the Super Tuesday contests where 14 other states will also cast their votes in the presidential primaries and other down-ballot races.

The ongoing protest votes against Biden by the far-left indicate that the incumbent may be in serious political trouble come November. In addition to the electoral embarrassment in Michigan, Biden also saw his one major challenger, Congressman Dean Phillips (D-Minn.), receive 20% of the vote in the New Hampshire primary. Phillips’ result marked the most successful performance by a challenger to an incumbent president in a New Hampshire primary since Pat Buchanan ran against President George H.W. Bush in 1992.
