Survey Data Shows Signs Support For Ukraine Waning Amongst US Voters


A Morning Consult report has shown that enthusiasm for the Ukrainian war effort appears to have cooler slightly amongst US voters.

  • Comes as this week's partial mobilisation and nuclear escalation from Russia may compel US voters to throw more weight behind Ukraine.
  • Morning Consult: "As U.S. voters continue to see high inflation, a record-low share (42%) say their government should impose sanctions on Russia even if it causes the price of goods to rise — down 14 percentage points from a high set in April at the start of the conflict."
  • Morning Consult: "Just 18% of U.S. voters say their country isn’t doing enough to halt Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, another record low that represents a 19-point decline from a 37% high set in early March."
  • With data hinting at voter fatigue there is potential for a change in political tack ahead of the general election in November. Bipartisan support for Ukraine remains strong in Congress but some analysts believe that if the GOP takes the House of Reps in November then the White House may find essential military aid packages for Ukraine more difficult to push through Congress.
