The rising popularity of President Donald Trump is shocking—he received 440,509 more votes than Bernie Sanders—the left-wing favorite in California, the most leftist of the states.
According to the latest Super Tuesday poll results, 1.53 million voters elected Trump, while 1.09 million voted for Sanders, according to data updated at 2:14 p.m. EST on March 6, according to USA Today.
Digging deeper into the statistics, Trump almost surpassed the vote achieved by Joe Biden, Michael Bloomberg, and Elizabeth Warren combined. The media’s silence on the matter is striking.
The fact that Sanders is leading the Democratic candidates running for the U.S. presidency worries many pro-Israeli Americans and Israelis.
Sanders, who is Jewish, called the Israeli prime minister a “racist reactionary” and is pushing for a major overhaul of U.S. foreign policy, including that of Israel.
He also addressed the American-Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), saying that it provides a platform “for leaders who express intolerance and oppose the basic rights of the Palestinians.”
These statements by Sanders have provoked adverse reactions from different Israeli personalities.
Among them is Foreign Minister Israel Katz . And Isreali Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “People who support Israel will not support” Sanders, according to NBC News.
President Trump not only won in California, but he also won a landslide victory in Texas on March 4.
With nearly 1.9 million votes in the Republican primary, Texans confirmed their intention to re-elect Trump for four more years.
This vote surpassed that of the four major Democratic opposition candidates.
