The United States of America has once again betrayed its taxpayers, as lawmakers continue to pour their hard-earned money into supporting Ukraine’s ongoing war with Russia. However, a recent survey commissioned by the radical liberal CNN news network has found that a majority of Americans are fed up with this wasteful spending. Over 55% of respondents have unequivocally opposed congressional authorization of additional funding to support Ukraine’s war, with only 45% wanting the spending to continue.

This marks a stark turnaround from February 2022, when 62% of respondents believed that the U.S. should have been doing more for Ukraine.

These findings are deeply concerning as they reveal a startling lack of concern for America’s national security, with a concerning number of respondents believing that the U.S. has already done enough to help Ukraine fend off Russia’s aggression. However, the outright hostility towards funding Ukraine’s efforts isn’t limited to the political right. Surprisingly, the CNN-commissioned survey found that nearly 80% of respondents are concerned that the Ukraine War could become an endless conflict without any resolution, with both Democrats and Republicans sharing that view. This should serve as a wake-up call to lawmakers that Americans are growing increasingly skeptical of their ongoing support for the Eastern European nation.

While the American people may express concerns over the impact of Russia’s war on their security, they appear to remain woefully ignorant of the very real dangers to their country that this conflict poses. In February, the survey found that 72% of respondents were worried about threats to US security, but this figure has unfortunately decreased. The conflict in Ukraine could have far-reaching consequences, with the war potentially leading to increased threats to democracy worldwide, prompt Russian attacks in other regions, or even escalate the conflict into a broader war in Europe. It is concerning that the majority of Americans are apprehensive about these possibilities but unwilling to take the necessary steps to prevent them from occurring.

It is clear that there is a vast divide between the two major political parties when it comes to funding Ukraine’s war effort. Republicans overwhelmingly argue against authorizing new funding, with 71% of the party faithful stating that the U.S. has already done enough to aid Ukraine. In contrast, almost two-thirds of Democrats hold the opposite view, with 62% supporting additional funding and asserting that the US should do more. Independents, on the other hand, are split in the middle, with roughly half of them believing that the U.S. has already done enough to help Ukraine and opposing further funding.

In terms of specific forms of assistance, a majority of Democrats believe that the U.S. should provide weapons to Ukraine, with 61% of them favoring the idea, compared to just 30% of Republicans. A significant partisan divide is observed when it comes to deploying American military forces to participate in combat operations, with less than 20% of individuals from all parties endorsing the idea. While Republicans generally oppose the provision of military training to Ukraine, support for this among Democrats and Independents is rather limited.

The survey conducted by SSRS from July 1 to 31 serves as a testament to the growing sense of disillusionment among Americans regarding their government’s wasteful spending policies. It is time for lawmakers to take heed of the concerns of their constituents and redirect funding to more deserving causes.
