New Poll Reveals Americans’ Support For Ukrainian Aid Falling

A new poll shows fewer Americans are now in favor of sending weapons and economic support to Ukraine.

  • A recent poll conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research reveals less than half of Americans support sending more aid to Ukraine, a significant drop from the previous survey conducted in May 2022.
  • Respondents were about evenly split when asking about sending government funds, with 37% opposing the effort.
  • Since the Russian invasion in February 2022, the United States has been the main contributor to Ukraine, with over $110 billion spent on financial, military, and humanitarian aid to the US ally.
  • Only 19% of those surveyed said they had a “great deal of confidence” in Biden to handle the war in Ukraine.

“America is in a state of managed decline, and it will exacerbate if we continue to hemorrhage taxpayer dollars toward a foreign war,” Gaetz said. “We must suspend all foreign aid for the War in Ukraine and demand that all combatants in this conflict reach a peace agreement immediately.”

  • In January 2023, President Biden approved the release of 31 Abrams M1 tanks to Ukraine with reports of another $2 billion in aid being considered.
  • Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is leading a resolution in the United States House of Representatives to put an end to military and financial aid to Ukraine while also urging all parties to reach a “peace agreement.”
  • The resolution, named the “Ukraine Fatigue Resolution,” has 10 co-sponsors and calls for the U.S. to “end its military and financial aid to Ukraine and urges all combatants to reach a peace agreement.”
  • The resolution highlights the amount of equipment that has been provided to Ukraine since the conflict began, including munitions that have “severely depleted United States stockpiles, weakening United States readiness in the event of conflict,” according to Pentagon officials.
