POLL: Do Most Americans Support Continuing to Arm Ukraine?
According to a Reuters poll, solid majorities of Americans support supplying Ukraine with weapons to defend itself against Russia’s military incursion against it. Further, American voters believe that this deployment of military aid shows China and other US strategic rivals that it’s willing to protect American interests and allies.
Specifically, 65% of poll respondents approved of sending the weapons shipments to Ukraine.
81% of Democrat voters, 56% of Republican voters, and 57% of independent voters are in favor of sending US weapons to Ukraine.
“The Republican leadership of the House and Senate will also take heart from this,” Taylor stated. Several Republican elected officials have stood against maintaining US military aid for Ukraine. As BLP has previously reported, Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie and Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz are among these elected officials who have opposed American aid to Ukraine.
The Biden regime has already approved 41 military aid packages for Ukraine that total $40 billion since the Russian government launched its so-called “special military operation” on February 24, 2022.
The poll discovered that 76% of Americans believe that supplying aid to Ukraine shows to China and other adversaries that the US has “the will and capability to protect our interests, our allies and ourselves.”
In some of its other findings, the poll discovered that 67% and 73% of American voters are more likely to back a candidate in the 2024 US presidential election who will continue sending military aid to Ukraine and one who supports the NATO military alliance, respectively.
Unfortunately, the American populace still remains bamboozled on military issues so it can be misled into supporting some of the stupidest of geopolitical causes. It’s going to take the combination of a new political class, a new media ecosystem, and a new intellectual elite to fundamentally transform American society and make it more receptive to the ideas of realism and restraint in foreign policy affairs.
