Americans Are Increasingly Wary of US Efforts To Harm Russia Causing Economic Damage in America

On March 8, President Joe Biden declared, in a speech announcing a ban on imports of Russian oil and gas, that these and other actions taken by the United States government “to inflict further pain on [Russia President Vladimir Putin]” would “cost us as well, in the United States.”

Since then, the US government’s economic sanctions on Russia – as well as spending, military training, intelligence sharing, and weapons transfers to attack the Russian military – have increased as the economic conditions in America have declined. Some of that economic decline is a result of the actions against Russia, as Biden suggested would be the case. Other parts of the decline have other causes.

New poling results from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research indicate that Americans are increasingly wary of incurring economic costs in America due to efforts to inflict pain on Putin or, as the poll puts it, “sanctioning Russia.” In fact, despite the nonstop hate Russia propaganda in the big money media, the polling indicates the majority of Americans are now opposed to harming the American economy to advance the anti-Russia crusade that Biden and most US Congress members have been pushing.

Support among polled individual for “sanctioning Russia as effectively as possible, even if it damages the US economy” dropped from 55 percent on March 22 to 51 percent on April 22 to 45 percent on May 22. Meanwhile, support for the contrary position of “limiting damage to the US economy, even if it means sanctions on Russia are less effective” rose each month from 42 percent to 45 percent to 51 percent.

Americans seem to be increasingly viewing fighting Russia as not worth the cost Biden mentioned in his March 8 speech. Will many politicians in Washington, DC soon come around as well?

  1. EU expansion is untenable. Obama’s state Department thought they could dislodge Russian speakers, but the Americans never voted for sacrifice.

  2. April 27, 2022 Dangerous Crossroads: Putin Warns the US to Back Off in Ukraine

    But this is not really a transformation. Sanger’s colleague at the Washington Post, David Ignatius, had written over three months ago that the Biden Administration was working on a road map to get Russia blogged down in Ukraine and attrition it in a way that it becomes a much diminished power on the world stage.

    1. In this instance Biden reminds me of Jimmy Carter, who urged the Russians to invade Afghanistan because he wanted to make it their Vietnam. Biden voted to authorize forever wars including the one in Afghanistan.

      I don’t know why the Western Politicians that want to see Russia weakened by being bogged down in wars think neither the US nor its coalition partners will be weakened by their forever wars.

  3. Russia needs to confiscate any and all property belonging to Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and monkeypox obama.
