President Joe Biden’s disastrous campaign for reelection has taken another hit, this time from some big-money donors.

His decision to pause shipments of weapons from the United States to Israel has rankled some of them, Just The News reported.

“Bad, Bad, Bad, decision, on all levels, Pls reconsider,” Israeli American Haim Saban, a Democratic megadonor, said in a letter to the White House. “Let’s not forget that there are more Jewish voters, who care about Israel, than Muslim voters that care about Hamas.”

In February, that same man held a mega fundraiser for the president.

“Biden cares deeply about Israel, it’s in his kishkes,” he said back then after having a private conversation with the president.

With a growing number of Democrat voters turning against Israel, Biden appears to be having trouble navigating the situation. A recent CNN poll of adults showed that 71% disapprove of his handling of the war in Gaza, including 81% of adults 18-34 years old.

Other influential pro-Israel donors besides Saban have become more critical of Biden as well.

Mark Mellman, head of the Democratic Majority for Israel, told Axios that “there has never been a president more pro-Israel than Joe Biden but at the same time we are very concerned about what appears to be a significant shift in US policy.”

“There are a lot of people in the pro-Israel community who are very worried, very upset and very angry,” the donor said.

“We don’t know what the consequences are going to be politically,” he said.

But it is not just the Jewish vote that the president is bleeding.

While President Joe Biden and his administration continue to try and convince Americans that their lives are better under his economic policies collectively known as “Bidenomics,” the reality for a growing majority is that no, life was much better under former President Donald Trump.

And in fact, a damning new statistic is likely to further endanger Biden’s reelection chances.

“Many people of all races, and especially younger voters, are dismissing President Joe Biden’s claim that ‘they have the money to spend,’ with some revealing that they went without food one day last month,” the Washington Examiner reported Friday, citing a new poll.

“In an unusual survey that tapped into the hurt many feel from inflation, minorities, young voters, and those with just a high school education suffered from food “insecurity,” Zogby Analytics said,” the outlet reported. At least 14 percent of respondents said they went at least a day without food in April.

Blacks, a reliably Democratic voting bloc that has increasingly shifted to Trump and that Biden is attempting to hold together have been especially hard-hit by his Bidenomics, which has produced record-high and sustained high foot prices.

African American voters who were aged 18-24 (34%) were almost five times as likely as voters aged 55-69 (7%) to experience food insecurity in the last month. Numbers also increased among rural African Americans (31%, compared to 21% of urban and 16% of suburban African Americans, respectively), and African Americans without a college education (23%) were twice as likely to experience food insecurity than those with a college education (10%),” the analysis said.

Hispanics are another demographic struggling under Biden.

“Among Hispanic voters, numbers were similar, especially among certain sub-groups. One in five (19%) of surveyed Hispanics experienced food insecurity. Younger Hispanics aged 18-24 (30%) were three times as likely to experience food insecurity than Hispanics aged 55-69 (11%). Also like African Americans surveyed, rural (29%) Hispanics were more likely to experience food insecurity, compared to urban (20%) and suburban (14%) Hispanics. Non-college educated (22%) Hispanics were twice as likely to have gone without food for more than twenty-four hours in the last month compared to college educated (10%) Hispanics,” the analysis said.

Jonathan Zogby, CEO of the polling firm, told the Examiner: “With inflation still hot in terms of food prices, people nationally, including minorities, are struggling to pay for groceries. The big test for President Biden will be to not have inflation or food insecurity numbers further increase in the next six months. Food insecurity could also hurt the president in certain swing states, especially if African American and Hispanic voters are struggling more to put food on their tables.”
