With the clock ticking down to midterm elections on November 8, Moment checked in with the participants in our Jewish Political Voices Project (JPVP).
As part of our Jewish Political Voices Project, Moment has been following 30 voters—3 from each of 10 battleground states—over the last 12 months as the political climate continued to shift and the pool of Democratic presidential candidates narrowed. As one of their final check-ins before casting their ballots, our voters shared their thoughts on the Trump and Biden campaigns, voting by mail and more.
Our Voters Voice Solid Support for Biden, but Disappointment that Race Is Now Between ‘Two Old White Guys’
With Super Tuesday behind us and the field now narrowed to former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders, we asked participants in the Jewish Political Voices Project who they now support for the Democratic nomination and their thoughts on the race thus far.
The thinking typically goes like this: Support the candidate you love, and the votes will follow. But these are not normal times.
What can 30 politically engaged Jewish voters tell us about the current state of our national political discourse and next year’s presidential election? Plenty, as it turns out.
Immediately following each presidential debate, we will survey the 30 participants in our Jewish Political Voices Project to get their reaction to the candidates’ performances and the debate’s impact on the campaign.
