ABC’s “The View” discussed the significant number of “uncommitted” votes in Michigan’s Democratic primary, totaling 13.2% of votes cast, with a focus on concerns from Arab-American communities regarding the Israel-Hamas conflict.

Host Sunny Hostin emphasized these votes as protests, particularly significant among young voters in college towns like Ann Arbor and East Lansing.

“These are protest votes,” Hostin said. “These are votes — they’re uncommitted votes — and they’re saying, ‘Hear us. Listen to us. Hundreds of members of my family have been killed. Yes! That is my issue. That is my one issue.’”

The potential impact on President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party was highlighted, with warnings about the consequences of not addressing these concerns among Arab-American voters in Michigan.

“What the Biden administration has to understand is that young voters — first time voters — are very concerned about this issue,” she said.

“And when it comes to Michigan, if you look at the breakdown,” Hostin added, “19 percent of those votes came from the University of Michigan — young voters — in Ann Arbor.”

“In East Lansing – home of Michigan State – uncommitted got 15 percent of the vote,” she said.

“There are 300,000 of the Arab population in Michigan,” she said. “And Trump carried Michigan in 2016 by about 11,000 votes.

“They are telling you — this issue matters, hear us,” Hostin said.

“If I then say, ‘You’re not doing it fast enough for me, so I’m going to sit,’” Whoopi Goldberg said. “That doesn’t help me.”

“They didn’t sit, though,” Hostin said.

“They voted (uncommitted). That’s the same for me as sitting,” Goldberg said.
