happen IF Democrats lose this segment?
The UAW is withholding an endorsement of Biden as it waits to hear back from the administration. UAW President Shawn Fain demanded the Biden administration give the UAW assurances that union workers will be protected as the federal government pushes for higher EV production. Biden, who describes himself as the “most pro-union president” in history, received the endorsement of the UAW in 2020 as the union typically backs any candidate with a “D” next to their name, but the UAW president said Biden has some more to prove before he gets an endorsement for 2024.
The fact that the UAW is so far withholding endorsement of Biden is a HUGE red flag for Democrats. The UAW! That, in and of itself, is a seismic shift.
Oh, the UAW will eventually endorse Biden–that is virtually for sure. But the fact that they are so unenthusiastic about Biden mirrors the sentiments of voters–they are also quite unenthusiastic about Biden. And workers may be far less likely to vote as a bloc.
