A “report card” grading the voting records of House Republicans on the issue of Ukraine military aid shows a stark split between those who backed the president’s position and those who opposed it.
The report, published by the Brookings Institution, found that 93% of House Republicans who voted to support the president’s position, including his decision to withhold military aid to Ukraine, earned a “passing grade” of A or B minus. In contrast, 71% of House Republicans who opposed the president’s position earned an “unsatisfactory” grade of D or lower.
The report, which looked at every vote taken by the House on foreign policy issues related to Ukraine, found that the vast majority of Republicans were consistent in their support or opposition to the president’s position.
The report also found that House Republicans who supported the president’s position were far more likely to receive donations from the president’s 2020 reelection campaign. These Republicans received, on average, $48,751 from the Trump campaign, compared to the $14,279 from the Trump campaign received by House Republicans who opposed the president’s position.
