Americans unwilling to go to war anymore: Poll

A recently-released poll found that the majority of American adults do not want to serve in the US military and “fight for their country anymore,” the American news magazine Newsweek has reported.

“… public confidence in the armed forces appears to be waning,” the Newsweek wrote on Friday.

A poll by the research institute Echelon Insights of 1,029 likely voters, conducted on October 23-26, found that 72% of those asked would not be willing to volunteer to serve in the armed forces if the US were to enter a major conflict, compared with 21% who say they would join to serve. The remainder of those polled were unsure, showed the poll results.

The poll was conducted after the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas led an unprecedented attack on Israeli regime on October 7.

Another recent poll by JL Partners conducted for the Daily Mail found that while an overall majority of Americans said they would die fighting for their country if the US were invaded, when broken down by age this sentiment was lowest among those who were 18-29 years old.

"If you look at our history, we need to be convinced to get into [a] war," David Eustice, CEO of Military Recruiting Experts, was quoted as saying in the report by the Newsweek.
