Support for Ukraine aid increases: Gallup

Support for Ukraine aid has increased among Americans since last November, according to a Gallup poll released Friday.

More than a third of respondents, 36 percent, said that they believe the U.S. is not doing enough to help Ukraine in its war against Russia. An equal percentage said the U.S. is doing too much to aid Kyiv, more than two years after Moscow invaded Ukraine.

In November, 41 percent of those surveyed said the U.S. was doing too much to aid Ukraine, compared to 25 percent who said not enough was being done.

An increasing number of independents now supporting more aid to Ukraine is partially driving the results, Gallup noted.

Some 60 percent of Democrats in the new poll said support for Ukraine is inadequate. Just more than a third of independents, 34 percent, said the same, along with 15 percent of Republicans.

More people are also now saying that Russia is winning the war against Ukraine. Around 23 percent said that the Kremlin is on the winning side, a 9-point increase since last fall. Only 12 percent of adults now believe Ukraine is winning, an 8-point decrease.

The majority of respondents in the new poll, 65 percent, said the war is in a stalemate.

Additional U.S. support for Ukraine has been stalled on Capitol Hill for more than a year.

The Senate passed the $95 billion foreign aid package in February, which included $60 billion in funds for Ukraine. Aid to Ukraine, however, has been met with opposition from some hard-line GOP members of the House. No significant progress has been seen since the lower chamber came back from recess this week, in spite of Senate GOP leadership pressuring Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) to put the foreign aid bill for a vote on the House floor.

The latest Gallup poll was conducted from March 1-17 among 2,222 adults. Its margin of error is 2 percentage points.
