9% of Americans, according to Paul Joseph Watson, “viewed Russia as the country’s most pressing issue back in March.” The numbers are plummeting like a rock right now.
Logically, interest in the Russo-Ukrainian war has waned significantly as people’s most pressing worries have shifted from foreign to domestic issues such as inflation, crime, and immigration.
Finally, the corporate media’s lack of interest in covering this conflict is partly due to the fact that Russia has been steadily gaining ground in Ukraine, which they thought would come to an end quickly following a Ukrainian victory.
Americans viewed Russia as a major concern immediately following the Russian military incursion into Ukraine. However, today, just 1% of respondents consider it to be the most crucial problem that politicians must address.
Compared to inflation, 17% of Americans now consider it an important issue. Similarly, bad governance is seen as a major problem by 17% of Americans. And 12% are concerned about the nation’s overall economic condition.
Furthermore, Russia isn’t even in the top 10 most essential problems for American voters, which include crime, gun regulation, and immigration.
When the economy collapses, and the US social order disintegrates as a result of increasing criminality and open borders, people will be less concerned about a faraway geopolitical conflict that, in reality, does not involve an immediate national relevance for America.
Right-wing populists should resist the neocons’ urge to show off their chests and claim for spreading liberal democracy and defending human rights across the world. They should stick to fundamental themes, such as opposing the Federal Reserve, regulatoryism, and Open Borders Inc., in addition to advocating smart infrastructure investment in the Rust Belt and other regions neglected by globalization.
