The Democratic member of the far-left ‘Squad’, Congressman Jamaal Bowman (NY), is not in good form in his primary re-election bid for a third term.

His poll numbers are down. Way down.

By the New York Post: “In a shocking new poll obtained exclusively by The Post Wednesday, Westchester County Executive George Latimer leads Bowman 52% to 35% among Democratic primary voters in the 16th Congressional District, which covers southern Westchester County and includes parts of the United States. northeast Bronx.”

That is 17 points less. In a primary race.

And he is the incumbent!

Things get worse for Bowman. The Post adds: “Among Democrats who voted in at least three of the last four primaries, Latimer’s lead grows to 21 percentage points — 56% to 35%, according to the survey conducted by veteran Democratic pollster Mark Mellman for the pro-Latimer Democratic Majority for Israel. Among Democrats who say they know both Latimer and Bowman – 76% of the primary electorate – Latimer’s lead expands even further to 26 points (60% to 34%).”

The story continues:

A major problem for Bowman is that Latimer has a much better image among voters than the incumbent president, who has been damaged by his self-imposed actions and rhetoric.

The job performance of the 70-year-old Latimer, who has held various positions in Westchester since the late 1980s, is viewed positively by 68% of Democrats in the district, while only 18% view him negatively.

By comparison, only 36% of respondents had a positive view of Bowman’s work in Congress, while 55% had a negative view.

“Latimer is doing 32 points better on the positive side, while Bowman’s negatives are a whopping 37 points higher than Latimer’s,” Mellman said.

His own worst enemy

If you remember, Jamaal Bowman pleaded guilty last year to setting off a fire alarm in the Cannon House Office. He did this during a vote to prevent a government shutdown.

Embarrassing high school antics may have something to do with Bowman’s low grades.

His stance on Israel could also contribute to his unpopularity.

“A resurfaced video from November also showed the congressman calling Israel an ‘apartheid state’ while angrily claiming that reports of rape and infanticide during Hamas’s Oct. 7 terror attack against Israel were a ‘lie,’ the Post said.

We don’t know who will win this primary. But a 17-point drop in the polls is quite an obstacle for the sitting congressman.
