A growing minority of Republicans believe the US is doing too much to stop Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, according to a poll released by Morning Consult on Thursday—the same day that Senate Democrats and Republicans voted overwhelmingly to approve $40 billion in aid for Ukraine—that found 27% of GOP voters now think the US is too involved in the war.

Morning Consult found the percentage of Republican voters who believe the US is doing too much to aid Ukraine more than doubled from 13% in an early March survey to 27% in a May 14-16 survey.

Over the same 10-week period, the share of GOP voters who think the US is not doing enough to halt Russia’s invasion dropped from 36% to 25%, and the percentage who think the US is doing the right amount remained fairly stable, at 32% in March and 34% in May.

Meanwhile, Democrats’ views have remained consistent since the start of the war: More than 70% said the United States is providing either the right amount of aid or not enough in this month’s survey.

Some 39% of all voters think the US is doing enough to assist Ukraine, while 20% said the US is doing too much and 25% said not enough.

Morning Consult polled around 2,000 people, including at least 657 Republican voters, from May 14 to 16.
