Poll reveals strong US public support for arming Ukraine, Israel, Taiwan

An annual poll commissioned by the Ronald Reagan Institute found strong US public support for arming Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, as Congress continues discussions on the course of action regarding President Joe Biden’s $106 billion supplemental spending proposal to equip all three security partners in the upcoming weeks, Defense News says.

The Reagan National Defense Survey, administered by Beacon Research and Shaw & Co., surveyed 2,506 US adults from October 27 to November 5, focusing on national security matters. The findings were disclosed by the Reagan Institute before its annual National Defense Forum, scheduled for 2 December.

Despite kind of a media narrative or what you might expect watching the debate on Ukraine aid in the US Congress, there is not waning support for Ukraine,” said Rachel Hoff, the policy director at the Reagan Institute. “In fact, there is steady and strong consistent support for Ukraine.”

According to her, a plurality of Republicans and a majority of Democrats support continued US military assistance to Ukraine.

The survey revealed that 59% of respondents favor US military assistance to Ukraine, with 30% expressing opposition. Notably, support for providing arms to Ukraine rises to 67% when respondents consider the Reagan doctrine, which commits to aiding allies in countering aggressors.

The poll also found that 56% of respondents support sending military equipment to Taiwan, with 28% opposing. In the context of the Reagan doctrine, support for arming Taiwan increased to 65%. Additionally, the poll revealed that 71% of respondents support US military aid for Israel, while 23% are against it within the same doctrine framework.

Biden’s $106 billion supplemental spending request, following the October 7 HAMAS attack on Israel, asks for $44.4 billion for Ukraine, $14.3 billion for Israel, and $2 billion for Indo-Pacific partners like Taiwan. Congress grapples with intricate debates.

Since then, Congress has been in complex negotiations due to Republican border policy demands, increased House GOP resistance to Ukraine aid, and some Democrats pushing for conditional Israeli military assistance.
