As Congress prepares to award up to $37 billion in taxpayer dollars to Ukraine, a large majority of Republicans want to reduce foreign aid.

According to a Morning Consult poll issued in late Nov., 48% of registered GOP voters want to reduce foreign aid handouts. According to the poll, 48% of Republicans would like to see a decreased engagement in the affairs of other nations around the world.

According to the findings of the study, not only do Republicans want the government to engage less often with soft power and international aid, but also 41% of GOP voters want to lower the deployment of U.S. soldiers overseas, and 46% want to diminish the engagement of the United States in military wars.

The survey was taken in the midst of President Joe Biden’s request for emergency assistance to Ukraine in the amount of more than $37 billion; to date, Congress has authorized around $66 billion in aid to Ukraine.

A significant number of conservatives have advocated for a closer examination of aid given to other countries.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, along with Representatives Thomas Massie, Paul Gosar, Matt Gaetz, Barry Moore, Andy Biggs, Matt Rosendale, Greg Steube, Dan Bishop, Andrew Clyde, and Clay Higgins, introduced legislation to audit all military, humanitarian, and economic aid given to the country.

America First Policy Institute, the Conservative Partnership Institute, the Heritage Foundation, American Moment, Americans for Prosperity, the Center for Renewing America, Defense Priorities, Freedom Works, and other conservative groups urged House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to resist sending any more aid to Ukraine during the lame-duck session.

At the beginning of November, the Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, Representative Scott Perry (R-PA), gave an interview in which he stated that all Americans should know if the United States is engaging in a “proxy war” with Russia.

The margin of error for the Morning Consult poll is two percent and was determined by polling a total of 2,005 registered voters between October 27 and 28.
