(FamilyConservationPAC.com) – According to recent polling, support for sending weapons to Ukraine has decreased from 46% in May to 41%, indicating a decline in support for Ukraine.
On the other hand, in May, only 29% of Americans opposed sending weapons; however, that percentage has now increased to 35%. This indicates an 11-point shift in the public’s view.
There is a difference in opinion across party lines: 52% of Democrats polled said they would keep supporting military assistance to the struggling country.
But according to Reuters, this represents a significant drop from May, when 61 percent of Democrats supported continuing military assistance.
On the other hand, only 39% of Republicans supported increasing the quantity of firearms in the nation in May, and only 35% did so in the most recent poll.

“The Reuters/Ipsos poll was conducted online and nationwide, surveying 1,005 U.S. adults,” noted Reuters’ Jason Lange and Patricia Zengerle. “It had a credibility interval, a measure of precision, of about 4 percentage points in either direction.”
“The declining support is having a negative effect on congressional support, and eventually, prospects for additional aid packages,” Elizabeth Hoffman, the Center for Strategic Studies’ director of legislative and government affairs, said in a statement to Reuters.
Hoffman’s judgment is reflected in the continuing resolution (C.R.) passed on Saturday, which funds the government at current levels.
The House of Representatives successfully passed a C.R. that did not include funds for Ukraine, and it was eventually passed by the Senate and signed into law by President Joe Biden.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate was working on its own stopgap that would have included $6 billion in help for Ukraine.
Proponents of continuing aid packages to Ukraine have included some Republicans and Democratic politicians, led by Joe Biden.
Kristina Wong of Breitbart News observed that the Biden administration is requesting an additional $24 billion in help on top of the $113 billion that the United States has already given the country.

The concept of sending more tax cash or American equipment to the country is typically rejected by more populist Republicans, and this disagreement has divided a large portion of the Republican presidential primary field.
Former President Donald Trump, who ran on an America First platform, promised that if he were elected, he would end the Ukraine conflict.
Trump’s populist views were evident when he addressed striking United Auto Workers as a counter-programming to the GOP debate on September 27, with accusations of Ukraine aid taking center stage.
“If we can afford to send hundreds of billions of dollars to Ukraine, then we can afford to have an auto industry that pays our workers a good living wage and keeps our workers working,” Trump said.

In an April speech in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy declared that should he win, he “would not give another dollar to Ukraine.” This information was reported by Breitbart News.
During the second Republican primary debate in September, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis declared, “It’s in our interest to end this war, and that’s what I will do as president.”
On the other hand, former vice president Mike Pence has argued in favor of ongoing assistance to Ukraine, saying in July on Breitbart News Saturday on Sirius XM that it “is in the interest” of the U.S.
Pence, who has met Russian President Vladimir Putin, stated, “But supporting the Ukrainian military to repel and defeat the Russian invasion is in the interest of the United States of America, and it’s in the interest of freedom.”
Pence, who identified as a supporter of the “Reagan Doctrine,” stated, “I will tell you I have no doubt in my mind that if the Russian army was able to overrun Ukraine, it would not be too long before they crossed a border where, under our NATO charter, our American armed forces would be required to go and fight.”
Another staunch advocate of helping Ukraine is former governor Nikki Haley (R-SC). She called Trump “weak in the knees when it comes to Ukraine” in late September.
