Approximately 50,000 Democratic primary voters in Wisconsin reportedly cast their ballots for a “uninstructed” delegation on Tuesday, in what can be seen as a progressive-led protest vote against President Biden’s approach to the Israel-Hamas conflict.

A significant portion of voters, approximately 8 percent or 48,000 votes, fell into the category of being “uninstructed.”

This group was more than 10 times larger than in the previous year and even exceeded the margin of victory between President Biden and former President Trump in the state’s general election.

Protest votes in several states have managed to secure a combined total of 26 delegates, with notable support in Michigan, Minnesota, and Washington.

In the recent Wisconsin primary, no delegates were awarded due to the fact that the uninstructed total fell short of reaching 15 percent support.

A mere 2 percent of GOP primary voters in Wisconsin opted for the “uninstructed” delegation.

The organizers far exceeded their initial campaign goal of 20,000 votes.

Progressives have rallied behind the movement, joining the chorus of voices criticizing Biden’s handling of the Israel-Hamas conflict.

Some have urged Biden to support a complete cease-fire in the conflict, a move he has declined, and to back up his growing disapproval of the Israeli military operation in Gaza with concrete steps.

Listen to Wisconsin, an activist group, celebrated the performance following the closure of the polls on Tuesday.

Efforts by the Biden administration to encourage the Israeli government to prioritize the well-being of civilians and increase the flow of humanitarian aid into Gaza have yielded limited results.

The United Nations has issued a warning about the onset of famine in the region, citing insufficient aid deliveries despite U.S. support.
