According to Mitch McConnell, standing with Ukraine is the top priority of Republican voters.
“A new CBS News/YouGov poll this week — the first to test the issue since Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke before Congress in December — is the latest to illustrate that drift. And despite Zelensky’s plea for American resolve, it shows that a slight majority of Republicans — 52 percent to 48 percent — want their member of Congress to oppose further Ukraine funding. …”
81% of Democrats continue to support funding the war in Ukraine while only 18% want to cut funding.
As I expected, Republican voters are souring on Ukraine and a majority now oppose continuing to fund the war. The tipping point seems to have been the Porkulus which was passed last month. We also now have the House and Kevin McCarthy has a narrow majority and has agreed to concessions that empower MAGA Republicans like Matt Gaetz who are opposed to Zelensky.
