An Ipsos survey conducted for Reuters revealed 41% of Americans support providing arms for Ukraine, while just 31% supported weapons for Israel.

Military support for Ukraine was stronger among Democrats with 32% of respondents opposed to further aid to Kyiv.

The Biden administration warned that funding for Ukraine aid is running low as the Republican-controlled House and Democratic-controlled Senate disagree on the future of U.S. aid to Ukraine.

Nearly half of respondents said that the U.S. should not play a role in the war in Ukraine.

On Nov. 14 U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson averted a federal government shutdown by passing a bill without further funding for Ukraine or Israel.
