WASHINGTON, D.C. – A new poll of Michigan Democrats by Lake Research Partners, a polling firm for the DNC and one of two lead pollsters for President Biden in Michigan, finds that 71% of Michigan Democrats support a ceasefire, including a 53% majority who feel that way strongly.

“Michigan Democrats overwhelmingly support a mutual ceasefire to save countless lives,” said Congresswoman Tlaib. “I will continue to advocate for a ceasefire, for the release of hostages and those arbitrarily detained, and for an end to this horrific violence. The answer to war crimes is not more war crimes. We must work to save as many lives as possible, no matter their faith or ethnicity.”

“This poll illustrates what Detroit Action and members in our community have expressed numerous times,” said Branden Snyder, Executive Director of Detroit Action, who commissioned the poll. “We are committed to a ceasefire in Gaza and the liberation of Palestinian people. Instead of feeding the global war machine, the $14 billion for Israel could go to feeding hungry children or vastly improving a public education system that has been underfunded for years.”
