A new Yahoo News/YouGov poll has revealed that when Americans are informed of what a NATO no-fly zone over Ukraine would really mean, shooting down Russian planes, support for it drops from 40 percent to just 23 percent.
Other recent polls have suggested that significant numbers are in favour of the measure, and the media has become obsessed with pushing for what could easily kick start a third world war.
However, opposition to the no-fly zone almost doubled to 43 percent, according to the poll, once respondents were told it would essentially mean war with Russia.
The new poll includes a split form test of ‘no fly zone’ — support plummets when respondents told NFZ means “the U.S. military would shoot down Russian military planes flying over Ukraine, possibly triggering a war between the U.S. and Russia” https://t.co/8rK3mgcuci pic.twitter.com/2lbjxE6O75
