Poll: 57% of Americans are tired of constant support for Ukraine

An opinion poll showed that 57% of Americans are tired of Washington’s constant support of Ukraine in the face of Russia and demand a diplomatic solution to end the crisis.

The Quincy Institute for Responsible Government stated that while diplomacy has been largely written off in Washington political and political circles as theoretical and not applicable in the Russo-Ukrainian War, New survey commissioned by Data for Progress 57% of potential voters strongly or somewhat support the continuation by the United States of diplomatic negotiations to end the war in Ukraine as soon as possible, even if this requires Ukraine to make concessions to Russia, while strongly or to some extent oppose only 32 % of respondents.

Nearly half of Americans oppose sending military aid to Ukraine unless the US is involved in diplomatic efforts to resolve the crisis.

The poll showed that almost half of the respondents (47%) said they supported the continuation of US military assistance to Ukraine only if Washington participates in ongoing diplomacy, and about 40% were in favor of supplying weapons to Kyiv, regardless of the negotiation process. .

The poll also showed that nearly 58 percent say they would oppose US military assistance to Ukraine at current levels if their country is suffering from high gasoline prices and high commodity prices.

Americans are also feeling the economic pressure of the war, with 61% saying it has affected them financially, and 58% saying they would oppose US assistance to Ukraine at current levels if the war raises gas prices and the cost of goods.

At the same time, the institute explained that the survey was conducted from September 16 to September 19, 2022, 1215 potential voters took part in it.

In this context, he said, Ukraine is currently the largest recipient of U.S. foreign military aid in a century, and U.S. involvement in the war is only increasing as Washington provides Kyiv with more advanced weapons and real-time intelligence.
