Alan Dershowitz: I'll Make My Final Decision on Election Day

Alan Dershowitz: I'll Make My Final Decision on Election Day

Alan Dershowitz said Friday that he only "could" vote for Joe Biden in 2020, clarifying radio remarks Thursday that he would support the former vice president in a showdown against Republican President Donald Trump.

"I will not make a final decision who to vote for until Election Day," the Harvard Law School professor emeritus said on Twitter. "I like Joe Biden but no one can take my vote for granted.

"I said I 'could' vote for Biden, not that I would," Dershowitz added. "I don’t like what Biden said to J Street about Israel.

"I could never vote for [Bernie] Sanders," he said.

When asked Thursday about his choice for president in next year's election, Dershowitz told SiriusXM radio host Dan Abrams that "I'm a strong supporter of Joe Biden.

"I like Joe Biden," he added, Fox News reports. "I've liked him for a long time and I could enthusiastically support Joe Biden."

But, then, Abrams asked, "Over Donald Trump?"

"Over Donald Trump, yeah," Dershowitz responded.

Regarding Sanders, the Vermont independent senator, Dershowitz told Abrams that his nomination "would present a real dilemma for me."

In April, Biden spoke at J Street's annual gala in Washington, slamming Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government for causing "overwhelming frustration" and creating the impression that "the path for peace is shrouded" with the Palestinians, Politico reports.

Dershowitz has long opposed J Street, the left-leaning lobbying group, fiercely questioning its policies toward Iran and other issues involving Israel's security.
