Fewer Than 1 in 6 Americans Want U.S. Soldiers in Any Ukraine-Russia War: Poll

•, Darragh Roche

A poll from Convention of States Action (COSA) in partnership with the Trafalgar Group found that just 15.3 percent of likely general election voters believed the U.S. should provide troops as "boots on the ground" in the event of an invasion.

The figures came as Secretary of State Antony Blinken met Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov for talks in Geneva with tensions between Russia and Ukraine remaining high.

The COSA/Trafalgar Group poll was conducted from January 12 to 14 among 1,081 likely general election voters and has a margin of error of +/-2.98 percent.

The Trafalgar Group enjoys an A- rating from poll tracker FiveThirtyEight.

Respondents were asked what level of involvement the U.S. should have if Russia invades Ukraine.

Deploying troops had the lowest level of support, while 31.1 percent of respondents supported providing supplies and weapons.

A further 30.5 percent agreed that the U.S. should provide "only diplomatic area pressure," while 23.2 percent supported the U.S. providing military advisers if there were an invasion.
