The U.S. has become the “bank” of Ukraine. No country has provided the war-torn country with as much financial support as America, and, despite such a fact, U.S. politicians want to continue sending hefty funds to Ukraine, with Democrats announcing their opposition to a recently introduced Israel-aid bill should such legislation exclude funding for Ukraine.
With this being said, a new Gallup poll revealed that an increasing number of Americans oppose further financial aid to Ukraine.
Americans are no longer as giddy to have their money sent to Ukraine, a known corrupt country where President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, was on the board of directors of an energy company, Burisma Holdings.
The Gallup poll showed that in the past four months, Americans’ views toward Ukraine aid have dramatically shifted, with 41% saying that the U.S. is doing “too much to help Ukraine.” This marks an increase from 29% of Americans in June 2023 who shared the same belief.

The poll revealed that just 33% of Americans believe the U.S. should continue sending Ukraine billions of dollars as the country defends itself against Russia.
“As the harsh winter months approach in Ukraine, Americans’ views on the war there have shifted, with a plurality now saying the U.S. is doing too much to help Ukraine,” Gallup wrote of its findings, as reported by the Daily Wire.
The poll found growing hesitancy to support U.S. aid to Ukraine among Republicans, Democrats, and independents.
Over 60% of Republicans and 44% of independents said America is doing too much for Ukraine – an opinion shared by just 14% of Democrats.
More than half of Americans surveyed said, “There should be a limit on financial support” to the European country, compared to 37% who said America should “Maintain financial support as long as Ukraine requests it,” per Gallup.
The poll comes weeks after the Biden administration asked Congress for $106 billion in national security-related funds for both Israel and Ukraine, as both countries seek to defend themselves against invasions.
House Republicans recently passed legislation to provide the Jewish State with $14 billion, derived from the Internal Revenue System’s (IRS) funds. The measure was opposed by all House Democrats and now heads to the Senate, where Democrats expressed their intent to vote against it.
