About 62% of likely U.S. voters say they are not confident that Democrat President Biden and his administration will be able to prevent Russia's war with Ukraine from spreading to other countries, according to a new poll.

About 16.5% of those polled said they are "not very confident" that Biden will be able to prevent the spread of war, and 45.2% said the are "not confident at all" based on the poll by the Trafalgar group in conjunction with Convention of States Action.

The poll was conducted from March 7-11, among 1,073 likely General Election voters with a 2.99% margin of error.

More than 33% of those those surveyed said the administration can prevent the conflict from spreading, and 5.1% said they are unsure.

Nearly 60% of Democratic voters said they believe in Biden's ability to prevent the war from spreading, while 72% of independents disagreed.

An overwhelming 82.3% of Republicans said they were not confident in the administration's war prevention abilities, while just 3.9% said they were "very confident" Biden will keep the war from spreading beyond its current borders.

Convention of States Action president Mark Meckler condemned the administration's handling of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, including how U.S.  leadership is now being perceived on the world  stage.

"This administration failed to see this war coming, failed to do enough to prevent it, and is now failing to contain the situation," he said. "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."
