A new poll is now showing that most Americans don’t want to risk a nuclear war with Russia in order to try and save Ukraine.
As The Daily Wire reports:
A new poll found that a majority of Americans agree with NATO’s decision not to enforce a no-fly zone over Ukraine due to concerns that it would lead to a direct conflict with Russia.
The Quinnipiac poll of nearly 2,000 U.S. adults, conducted between March 10-14, also found that three fourths of Americans want the U.S. to supply aid to Ukraine, as long as it did not put the country at risk of war with Russia.
According to the poll, a clear majority, 54%, agreed with NATO’s continued refusal to enforce a no-fly zone, while just 32% disagreed, and 15% had no opinion. Majorities of Democrats and Independents, 58% to 30% and 57% to 30%, respectively, agreed with NATO, while a plurality of Republicans, 47% to 38%, also agreed.
In spite of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s continual demands that the U.S. establish a no-fly zone over his embattled and surrounded country, most serious U.S. leaders have already ruled it out:
But members of Congress from both parties have warned that enforcing a no-fly zone would lead to war with Russia. Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio recently told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that a no-fly zone would mean flying planes fitted with Airborne Early Warning and Control systems (AEWCs or AWACs) over Ukraine, as well as engaging Russian aircraft and attacking Russian anti-aircraft positions, not just in Ukraine, but in Russia itself, which would inevitably result in war breaking out. “So basically a no-fly zone — if people understood what it means, it means World War III,” Rubio said.
