Bedford Warns Biden Reelection at Risk Amid Rising Pro-Palestinian Campus Protests

The Washington Examiner’s Sarah Bedford raised concerns about President Joe Biden’s chances of winning reelection in light of the surge in pro-Palestinian support on college campuses in the United States. Bedford pointed out that the increasing number of protests against Israel, coupled with some Democratic lawmakers criticizing Israel’s leadership, could pose a threat to Biden’s reelection prospects. She highlighted how this trend may make Biden appear to be aligning with radical elements within the Democratic Party, which could alienate centrist voters.

Bedford emphasized that Biden’s efforts to distance himself from anti-Israel sentiments may not be enough to counter the perception that he is pandering to the radical faction of his party. She suggested that Biden’s association with Democrats who espouse anti-Israel rhetoric could reinforce the image of him abandoning his centrist principles in favor of aligning with a radical and out-of-touch minority within his party.

The wave of protests in the U.S. gained momentum following the Hamas terrorist group’s attack on Israel on Oct. 7. Demonstrations, such as the occupation of Columbia University’s main lawn by pro-Palestinian students, have raised concerns about the safety of Jewish students on campuses. Sen. Josh Hawley has even urged Biden to deploy the National Guard to provide protection to Jewish students at college campuses.

Despite the White House’s statement reaffirming support for the Jewish people and the security of Israel, concerns persist about Biden’s handling of the situation. The statement emphasized the administration’s commitment to securing the release of hostages and brokering a ceasefire in Gaza. However, the ongoing protests and criticisms from within Biden’s own party continue to fuel doubts about his ability to effectively address the growing pro-Palestinian sentiment in the U.S.

In conclusion, Bedford’s analysis underscores the potential electoral repercussions for Biden as he grapples with navigating the rise in pro-Palestinian support and anti-Israel sentiments within the Democratic Party and on college campuses. As the 2024 election looms, Biden faces the challenge of striking a balance between upholding traditional U.S. support for Israel and appeasing the vocal pro-Palestinian faction within his party.
