Americans still don't want to use military force against Russia
How do most Americans feel about the situation between Russia and Ukraine?
“There is no greater appetite for a military approach to address the situation between Russia and Ukraine than there was two weeks ago,” the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press reported today.
While more Americans see Russia as a “serious problem” according to Pew’s most recent poll, only six percent of those surveyed believe the president should consider military options, which is down two percent from two weeks ago.
Partisan leanings also play a factor in views on Russia, according to Pew’s poll. “Republicans have become much more likely to view Russia as an adversary over the past four months,” the study says. “By comparison, just 23 percent of independents and 19 percent of Democrats call Russia an adversary.”
