A new poll asked the American people what they would do if the U.S. were invaded, and the responses from Democrats may surprise you.
If the United States were to face the same situation that Ukrainians are currently in, what would Americans do?
Well, the Democrats’ answer to that question says a lot about how much their party has changed in the past few years.
If the United States were invaded, 55 percent of Americans say they would stay and fight, but those would mostly would be the Republicans and Independents, because a majority of Democrats responding to this new poll say they would choose to run and hide.
According to a poll conducted by Quinnipiac University, if Americans were in the same position as Ukrainians now are, 55% responded confirming they’d stay and fight. While 38 percent said they’d leave. Quinnipiac surveyed 1,374 U.S. adults from March 4-6. The results have a margin of error of 2.6 percentage points.
Among Republicans, those who choose to fight totaled 68% of those responding, while those who would run were only 25%. Among Independents, 57% said they would stay and fight, while 36% said they’d run.
When the pollsters questioned Democrats on the subject, 52 percent of them said that they would opt to run and hide if the U.S. were invaded, while only 40 percent would stay and fight.
WND reported on further details of the poll, writing:
Male respondents by a 75%-19% margin said they’d fight, as would whites 57%-35% and Hispanics 61%-33%. Blacks would run, by a 59%-38% margin.
The poll also showed respondents, by a 50%-31% margin, said it was fair to compare Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and massacres of civilians “to Adolf Hitler’s actions against Austria and Czechoslovakia before the outbreak of World War II.”
Putin’s dictatorial power also was presumed, with 86% saying the Russian people do not have a say in what Putin and his government do.
The polling also explained:
“At nearly the end of week two of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, as the U.S. and its allies consider ratcheting up sanctions against Russia, Americans say 71-22 percent that they would support a ban on Russian oil even if it meant higher gasoline prices in the United States.
Joe Biden on Tuesday announced an end, for now, to imports of Russian oil.
“As for the steps that the Biden administration has taken so far to punish Russia for the invasion of Ukraine, 56 percent say they are not tough enough, while 30 percent say they are about right, and 3 percent say they are too tough,” the poll said.
“Americans are ready to put a chokehold on Russia’s key financial lifeblood, oil, no matter what the consequences are at the pump,” explained Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy.
Also revealed was “broad support” at 79%-14% for a U.S. military response if Putin attacks a NATO country, and a fear, 60%-28% that Putin is willing to use nuclear weapons.
Only 42% approve of Biden’s handling of the Russian invasion, while 45% disapprove.
“For his overall job approval, Americans give Biden a negative 38%-51% job approval rating with 11% not offering an opinion,” the poll said.
Sixty-four percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, while the number who think Putin is “mentally unstable” has surged.
The new poll reveals 50% “think he’s mentally unstable, while 21 percent think he’s mentally stable.”
Beyond that, it’s difficult to tell just how much Americans’ views on the war could change, especially when taken into account how volatile the situation is. But, so far, evidence suggests Republicans are still more patriotic than Democrats.
