“Squad” member and US Rep. Cori Bush could lose big in this summer’s Democratic primary, according to a new poll.
A new poll by GOP firm Remington Research finds Bush, (D-Missouri), losing by 22 points to rival Wesley Bell in the Aug. 6 contest.
“It’s a big red flag for far-left Squad lawmakers,” Josh Kraushar, editor-in-chief of Jewish Insider, posted on X. “This data is yet another example why pandering to the left-wing radicalism on Israel in the Dem party is a counterproductive strategy for Biden.”
While the poll was a small sample size of just 401 voters, the results are stark.
In the survey conducted last week, 50 percent of those polled said they were in favor of Bell, a former prosecutor, with just 28 percent saying yes to Bush. The margin of error was 4.9%.
Bush has been as one of the sharpest critics of the Israeli government in Congress and a vocal advocate for a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war.
Her criticism of Israel following Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack, which killed at least 1,200 people, has made her a lightning rod and shows the chasm separating Democrats about how to respond to the Israel-Hamas war.
Some of what Bush has said have caused her some blowback within her Missouri congressional district, which includes all of St. Louis and some of its suburbs — but she has not backed down.
The winner of the Democratic primary will be an overwhelming favorite to win the general election in November because the district is solidly Democratic and about 50% African American.
It includes all of St. Louis, much of north St. Louis County and a portion of west St. Louis County.
