Most say U.S. should ‘not get too involved’ in Ukraine situation: poll

As Russian troops remain in Ukraine’s Crimea region and Crimea’s Parliament has set up a secession vote, Americans prefer the U.S. to not get too involved in the situation.

By a roughly two-to-one margin (56% vs. 29%), the public says it is more important for the U.S. to not get involved in the situation with Russia and Ukraine than to take a firm stand against Russian actions.

Opinions about the administration’s handling of the situation are divided along partisan lines.

A majority of Republicans (67%) disapprove of its handling of the situation, while most Democrats (56%) approve.

Independents by roughly two-to-one (52% to 24%) disapprove of how the administration has handled the situation involving Russia and Ukraine.
