The Mike Report asked me if I had a scorecard of how resolutions to divest from Israel have been doing on university campuses this year. I knew that most had failed but I didn't have all the details, so I asked StandWithUs, who have been very involved in the issue, if they could help.

Their beautiful chart that they sent is too nice to keep to myself:

This means nine times divestment failed, either by a direct vote or by a vote to table the motion indefinitely, which is effectively the same thing. Twice it passed only to become rescinded or vetoed.

It only passed for real three times out of fourteen.

So when I say that BDS on college campuses has run out of steam - this is what I mean.

My guess is that the Israel haters, consistently losing  on campus, will next start to resorting to online polls in student newspapers to "prove" that they are still relevant.

H/t Mike Report and StandWithUs. Here's a cartoon in Mike Report than sums it up:
