Polls: No war, no faith in Biden

By M.D. Kittle

Nearly two-thirds of Americans oppose risking the lives of America’s troops to enforce a “no-fly zone” or peacekeeping mission in Ukraine, according to a new poll by Convention of States Action.

The poll, conducted March 18-21 by renown pollster The Trafalgar Group, found 66.3 percent of those surveyed are not willing to risk the lives of America’s young people through increased military actions in Ukraine. About 34 percent say they are willing — 7.5 percent very willing — to send U.S. service members into Ukraine in support of a no-fly zone or peacekeeping mission.

A majority of Republicans and Democrats oppose such military involvement, with 67 percent of Republicans and 64 percent of Dems unwilling to risk the lives of U,S. service members.

“The current Administration’s disastrous mishandling of the Afghanistan withdrawal is still fresh in American’s minds, and leads directly to this result,” said Mark Meckler, president of Convention of States Action. “This poll, and others like it, are making one thing clear—Americans lack confidence in this Administration to lead on the world stage.”

Confidence in Biden’s foreign policy (or lack thereof) is likely eroded further in the rhetorical wreckage of the president’s trip to Europe.

As Fox News reported, the White House had to walk back what seemed to be Biden’s suggestion that U.S. troops in Poland would soon see what it’s like in war-torn Ukraine, more than a month after Russia’s invasion.

“And you’re going to see when you’re there,” he told the 82nd Airborne Division. “And some of you have been there. You’re going to see — you’re going to see women, young people standing — standing… in front of a damn tank, just saying, ‘I’m not leaving. I’m holding my ground.  They’re incredible.  But they take a lot of inspiration from us.”

A White House spokesperson later clarified: “The President has been clear we are not sending U.S. troops to Ukraine and there is no change in that position.”

On Saturday, Biden appeared to call for regime change in Russia, declaring that Russian President Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power.”

“For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power,” Biden said during the speech in front of the Royal Castle in Warsaw, Poland.

The president’s assertion was a dramatic departure from the administration’s previous statements, that regime change in Russia is not U.S. policy.

The White House again was forced to bring in the clean-up crew.

“The President’s point was that Putin cannot be allowed to exercise power over his neighbors or the region. He was not discussing Putin’s power in Russia, or regime change,” a White House official told Fox News Digital shortly after the speech concluded.

Biden’s job-approval rating has plunged to its lowest level, according to an NBC News poll, released Sunday. Just 40 percents of those surveyed approve of the president’s job performance. Seven in 10 American voters have lost confidence in his ability to handle the crisis in Ukraine.

Like the Convention of States poll, the NBC survey was conducted before Biden’s trip to Europe.

  • “Chamberlain sought to conciliate Germany and make the Nazi state a partner in a stable Europe.[ He believed Germany could be satisfied by the restoration of some of its colonies, and during the Rhineland crisis of March 1936 he had stated that “if we were in sight of an all-round settlement the British government ought to consider the question” of restoration of colonies.”

    Replace Chamberlain with Biden and Germany with Russia. Ukraine will be thrown into the burn pit of history and the next to be conceded to Russia will be Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. The socialist Biden/Obama USA administration will dance in the streets.

    With Biden in charge the USA will probably follow and if the strike forces Biden managed to move into place in the dark of night from ‘illegal immigrants’ take action, very quickly. Paranoid? Yes. Possible, also yes.
