In fact, Trump was so friendly with Putin that he took an issue (Russia) that was either bipartisan or one on which Republicans were more skeptical and turned it into a partisan one, with Republicans more inclined to be on Russia’s side. That still holds true today.
Indeed, like with Russia as a whole, other polling indicates that Republicans are more likely to hold a favorable view of Putin than Biden.
Putin, of course, is not a fan of NATO.
The question is what happens in the upcoming years as we get further away from Trump’s time in office. Interestingly, Americans have shifted their opinion more on Russia in the last 20 years than most other countries that we’ve had hostile relations with such as Iran and North Korea.
At the beginning of the century, a majority of Americans actually had a favorable view of Russia.
It’s at least possible that with some time and a different president, opinions may shift again.
