( – Experts have argued that the division in the Democratic Party over their stance on the Israel-Hamas conflict could result in some Democrat-leaning Jewish voters in the U.S. reconsidering who they support in the 2024 presidential election.

According to a report on Fox News Digital, several Jewish voters and experts stated that this division could play a role not only in the presidential race but also in congressional and local races. Many House Democrats, such as Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, have slammed both the leaders of their party and President Biden over their support of Israel in the conflict.

The former media director at the Israeli Consulate in New York, Jake Novak, told Fox News Digital that this type of shift has not occurred since 1980. He added that in 1980, Jimmy Carter had still managed to win the support of the majority of Jewish voters but had done so at a decreased rate from ’76. He added that there were many Jewish voters at the time who had been disappointed.

The Pew Research Center has found that 64 percent of Jewish voters identified as either left-leaning or Democrats, while only 26 percent identified as right-leaning or Republicans. The remaining 9 percent did not identify with either side.

However, Novak, who works as a political analyst, has argued that despite the small difference in support between the two sides, in the upcoming election, there is going to be a big shift in how Jewish Americans vote. He argued that he did not know if any Jews would be voting for former President Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential election, but that there would be more Jews supporting Republican candidates.
