A majority of Americans also now oppose more U.S. aid to Ukraine, according to a CNN report.

"And 51% say that the US has already done enough to help Ukraine while 48% say it should do more. A poll conducted in the early days of the Russian invasion in late February 2022 found 62% who felt the US should have been doing more," it added.
AMERICAN GOP WANTS TO END SUPPORT FOR UKRAINE

Republicans are more strongly opposed to further Ukraine aid, with a majority against additional funds since at least January.
"A slight majority of Republicans — 52 percent to 48 percent — want their member of Congress to oppose further Ukraine funding," the Washington Post noted.
Biden is currently requesting another $24 billion for the Ukraine war effort. If approved, it would make $135 billion since the start of Russia's invasion in February 2022.
The American people originally strongly supported Ukraine's resistance to Russia but the Biden administration's overwhelming funding internationally while failing to create economic benefits in the U.S. has led to public opinion shifting in the opposite direction within less than two years.
