Most voters oppose the idea of the United States putting troops on the ground in Ukraine in the event of a Russian invasion of the country, according to a new poll from the Trafalgar Group released on Friday.
The poll, which was conducted in partnership with the Convention of States Action, found that less than 1-in-5 support putting U.S. troops on the ground if Russia invades Ukraine, while less than 1-in-3 think that the U.S. should provide military advisers, weapons, or supplies.
When asked “what level of involvement should the U.S. have if Russia invades Ukraine?”
- 30.5% said the U.S. should “provide only diplomatic area pressure.”
- 15.3% said the U.S. should “provide U.S. troops as boots on the ground.”
- 23.2% said the U.S. should “provide U.S. military advisers.”
- 31.1% said the U.S. should “provide supplies and military weapons.”
“Our leaders often forget that the American people have great wisdom in understanding the nature of threats abroad,” Mark Meckler, president of Convention of States Action, said in a statement. “Voters in all parties stand squarely behind a U.S. military defense of a free and democratic Taiwan, even though that comes with great risk — and potentially a high cost to our nation — against the growing threat from China.
“Conversely, while voters clearly sympathize with Ukraine and support assisting them through diplomacy and other means, there is no support for U.S. military intervention should a conflict arise with Russia. The Biden administration should take note.”
The poll also asked voters, “Do you believe the Biden administration should use U.S. military assets to defend Taiwan if Taiwan is invaded by China?”
- 41.9% said no.
- 58.1% said yes.
The poll was conducted among 1,000 likely voters across the country from Jan. 12-14, 2022, with no margin of error given.
Have you received Salvation from Jesus the Messiah? Time is running out. Jesus will return very soon. The signs of His return are everywhere in this crazy world we are living in. Please read below so that you can be saved. Jesus is the only way to Heaven. The Words below are directly from the Bible, so you can trust them.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all )is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)
“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. IF YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. (John 15:9)
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
For those of us who persevere and do what Jesus says to do, we have this to look forward to in eternity: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
