New COSA Poll: 61% Majority Lack Confidence Biden Can Prevent Ukraine War from Expanding to Other Countries–Including a Third of Democrats

Published in Blog on March 15, 2022 by Article V Patriot

The American people have lost faith in their commander-in-chief.

According to a new poll from Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group, a full 61% of Americans do not believe President Joe Biden can prevent the war in Ukraine from expanding to other countries. 

  • 45.2% say not confident at all
  • 16.5% say not very confident

Those figures include 72% of Independents, 82.3% of Republicans, and a surprising 35.9% of Democrats.

“This Administration failed to see this war coming, failed to do enough to prevent it, and is now failing to contain the situation. The lack of decisive action on Ukraine and a series of cringe-worthy comments from both President Biden and Vice President Harris are leaving a distinct impression with voters that Team Biden has no idea what they’re doing,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. “When the peace of humanity is at stake and the security of America is at risk, this isn’t a time for partisans to rejoice over Biden’s utter failure, it’s time to seek immediate solutions and new leadership.”

It's no surprise that Joe Biden is losing the trust of the American people. His poll numbers have been slipping for months, and his botched withdrawal from Afghanistan proved his incompetence on the world stage.

But the American distrust of the federal government goes beyond one president. Trust in the entire government in Washington has been slipping for decades. The American people do not believe their elected official in Washington have the competence or willingness to work for the betterment of all Americans. As the late Sen. Tom Coburn famously told Congress, "America doesn't trust you."

And yet, year after year, Washington accumulates more power to themselves, and the American people feel powerless to stop it -- until now.

An Article V Convention of States allows We the People to act on our distrust of Washington and strip them of their power, money, and position. A Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments. These amendments can limit federal power, force Congress to be fiscally responsible, and mandate term limits for federal officials.

With this complete package of amendments in place, it won't matter how much the American people trust Washington. Washington will have very little power to control any area of American life, and We the People can stop worrying about the federal government and get back to our communities and our states.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
