The results of a survey conducted by Reuters/Ipsos among US citizens on the provision of United States assistance to Ukraine have been published.
The poll showed that seven and a half months after the Russian army invaded Ukraine, 73% of Americans agree that the United States should continue to support Ukraine, despite Russian warnings that it may use its nuclear arsenal. Among supporters of the Democratic Party, 81% think so, among supporters of the Republican Party – 66%.
Moreover, in the course of a poll conducted on October 4-5, 66% of respondents said that Washington should definitely continue supplying weapons to Ukraine. In August, during a similar survey, 51% of respondents agreed with this.
At the same time, the poll showed that the majority of Americans – 58% – are afraid that the US is on the way to a nuclear war with Russia. And 65% are concerned that the war could escalate if Ukraine is provided with longer-range weapons that can hit targets in the Russian Federation.
At the same time, 35% of Americans believe that the problems of Ukraine are not the problems of the United States, and therefore America should not actively interfere in what is happening. In August, 40% of respondents thought so.
68% of those polled said they were more likely to support a candidate in the election who favors continued military assistance to Ukraine. 72% said they were more likely to support a candidate who favors helping Ukrainian refugees.
