    A growing number of Americans believe the U.S. is getting too involved in the Ukraine-Russia War as support for U.S. aid to Ukraine grows smaller, according to a new poll released by Gallup.

    Americans' feelings on U.S. aid to Ukraine have shifted dramatically in the past four months, with 41% of the country now saying the U.S. is doing "too much to help Ukraine," the Gallup poll, which surveyed over 2,000 American adults, found. That number is up from 29% of Americans in June who said the U.S. was doing too much for Ukraine.


    Only 33% of Americans believe the U.S. is aiding Ukraine in its fight against Russia the "right amount" - down from 43% who said the same four months ago. The percentage of those surveyed who want the U.S. to do more to help Ukraine decreased from 26% to 25% from June to October.

    "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 after surveying Americans between October 4-16.

    The poll also found increased hesitancy to support U.S. aid to Ukraine among Republicans, Democrats, and independents. Sixty-two percent of Republicans and 44% of independents now say America is doing too much for the European country. Only 14% of Democrats say the same, but that's up from 10% who said the U.S. is doing too much in June.

    A majority of Americans (61%) said, "There should be a limit on financial support" to Ukraine compared to 37% who said the U.S. should "Maintain financial support as long as Ukraine requests it," according to Gallup. The poll also found that 64% of U.S. adults don't believe either side is currently winning the war, which is well into its 20th month. Americans' desire to see the conflict end quickly has grown in the past four months as 43% of U.S. adults, up from 36% in June, now say they prefer a quick resolution to the war above an outcome where Ukraine reclaims all the territory Russia has captured.

    The Gallup poll on Ukraine was conducted over the two-week period that saw Hamas launch its brutal attack on Israel. On Thursday, the U.S. House, led by Republicans and joined by 12 Democrats, passed an aid package that would send $14.3 billion to Israel without any additional aid to Ukraine.

    Last month, President Joe Biden asked Congress to approve around $106 billion in national security-related funds with the majority, $61.4 billion, going to Ukraine. Biden has threatened to veto any plan that would aid Israel without including more funds being sent to Ukraine, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) vowed not to bring the House's plan up for consideration.


    "Let me be clear: The Senate will not take up the House GOP's deeply flawed proposal," Schumer said in a post to X on Thursday. "Instead we will work on our own bipartisan emergency aid package that includes funding for aid to Israel, Ukraine, humanitarian aid including for Gaza, and competition with the Chinese Government."

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"
