A week after over 100,000 Democratic voters declined to cast a ballot for President Joe Biden in the Michigan primary, more than 45,000 Minnesota Democrats — nearly 20% of those who participated in the party’s Minnesota primary election on Super Tuesday — voted “uncommitted.”

With an estimated 80% of the vote counted as of Wednesday afternoon, Biden won the Minnesota Democratic primary with just over 70% of the vote, but his margin of victory was inhibited by 19% of Democrats who participated in the election voting “uncommitted,” according to Decision Desk HQ. Rep. Dean Phillips, a Democrat who represents Minnesota’s 3rd District, came in third behind Biden and “uncommitted” with 7.8%.

“Congratulations to Joe Biden, Uncommitted, Marianne Williamson, and Nikki Haley for demonstrating more appeal to Democratic Party loyalists than me,” Phillips posted on X on Tuesday night before suspending his campaign and endorsing Biden on Wednesday.

Like the results in Michigan a week ago, Biden’s hampered victory in Minnesota indicates a potential issue for Democrats heading into the general election as Muslim voters, a demographic that votes predominantly blue, have voiced frustration with the Biden administration’s support for Israel. Both Michigan and Minnesota have large Muslim populations, and far-Left activists have encouraged voters to protest Biden’s stance on the Israel-Hamas war by voting “uncommitted.”

Both Minnesota and Michigan could be crucial for the president to hold onto in the 2024 election after his victories in both states helped propel him to a win in 2020 over former President Donald Trump. Biden won Minnesota by a safe margin in 2020, taking 52.4% of the vote to Trump’s 45.3%, while his win in Michigan was much closer, topping Trump by less than three percentage points.

A significant number of Democratic voters in other states also refused to support the president on Tuesday, with 88,000 Democrats—12.7% of those who went to the polls—voting “no preference” in North Carolina and 9.3% voting “no preference” in Massachusetts.


Besides Biden’s issues with Muslim voters, the 81-year-old president is also trying to assure voters he has the stamina for another general election campaign and four more years in office. Last month, Trump called on Biden to take a cognitive test, just hours after the commander-in-chief’s doctor said he was “fit to serve” following his annual physical exam.
