Convention of States: Voters Oppose U.S. Military Action in Russia-Ukraine, Support Defense of Taiwan

 


Unnamed

(Austin, TX—January 21, 2022) Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group—one of America’s most accurate pollsters in 2016, 2018, 2020, and 2021—is releasing the results of a new national survey. Results were from surveys conducted January 12th through January 14th of over 1,000 likely 2022 election voters.

“Our leaders often forget that the American people have great wisdom in understanding the nature of threats abroad,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. “Voters in all parties stand squarely behind a U.S. military defense of a free and democratic Taiwan, even though that comes with great risk—and potentially a high cost to our nation—against the growing threat from China. Conversely, while voters clearly sympathize with Ukraine and support assisting them through diplomacy and other means, there is no support for U.S. military intervention should a conflict arise with Russia. The Biden Administration should take note. Voters will be keeping their eye on the latest Ukraine war statistics.”
