A majority of Americans – mostly Republicans and Independents – would stay and fight if an invasion similar to that taking place in Ukraine happened here in the United States.
Most Democrats say they would flee the country.
This, according to a new poll out of Quinnipiac University.
The polling firm presented this hypothetical situation: “As the world witnesses what is happening in Ukraine, Americans were asked what they would do if they were in the same position as Ukrainians are now: stay and fight or leave the country?”
Overall, a majority of Americans – 55 percent – said they would stay and fight to defend their country. Just 38 percent said they would leave the country.
The problem comes when broken down by political party.
Broken down by party, the answers in the Quinnipiac poll are rather interesting.
Of the Republicans polled, 68 percent would stay and fight while just 25 percent would leave the country. Independents would fight as opposed to fleeing by a 57-36 percent margin.
Democrats, however, would leave.
Fifty-two percent said they would flee the country if it were invaded and just 40 percent said they would stay and fight, according to the poll.
Granted Republican voters would seemingly be doing the bulk of the fighting, but it’s nice to know Americans overall would stay and fight for their country if a military invasion took place.
“When confronted with a terrible hypothetical that would put them in the shoes of the Ukrainians, Americans say they would stand and fight rather than seek safety in another country,” Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy said.
Former President Donald Trump’s son had his own analysis of the poll numbers showing Democrats would flee if under attack like Ukraine.
“No one should be surprised that the majority of Dems wouldn’t fight for their country if invaded,” he tweeted. “They’ll just move to the communist utopia of their choosing and find out what it’s like the hard way.”
Nearly half of Americans (49%) according to the same poll report feeling anxious over the events taking place in Ukraine.
The survey also shows Americans disapprove of President Biden’s response to Russia by a 45-42% margin, a slight improvement from a week ago.
Overall, 51 percent disapprove of Biden’s job performance as President while a paltry 38 percent approve.
