79% of Americans support the embargo on Russian oil even if energy prices rise

A large majority of Americans, 79%, said they would support a ban on Russian oil imports even if the ban increases US energy prices, according to data from a new Wall Street Journal poll. Only 13% said they opposed it.

President Biden on Tuesday stop buying of Russian crude oil, some petroleum products, liquefied natural gas and coal – the latest economic hurdle the White House has put in front of Moscow in an attempt to deter Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

A new “Journal” poll shows broad support for Mr. Biden’s energy embargo through political meltdowns. The ban was supported by 77% of Republicans and 72% of voters who said they would support former President Trump if he runs again in 2024. Among Democrats, 88% said they would prefer stopping Russian oil imports, including 94% of Democratic men. .

The magazine poll polled 529 registered voters March 4-7 with this question: “Do you support or oppose the United States imposing new sanctions on Russia by banning the sale of Russian oil to the United States, even if you know it will drive up energy prices? American .to high?”

The margin of error was plus or minus 4.3 percentage points.

Other results from the broader poll, conducted by the companies of Democrat John Anzalone, the lead pollster for Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign, and Republican Tony Fabrizio, the top pollster for Trump’s two campaigns, will be released in the coming days.
