Topic: ISIS (2/5) - Obama's worst issue
Do you favor or oppose the United States sending ground troops into combat operations against ISIS forces in Iraq or Syria?
No Opinion: 2.6%
While Americans, on average, slightly opposed sending ground troops to defeat ISIS, the nation flipped in favor in the most recent polls — notably, after the Paris attacks.
Still, Obama remains opposed to sending ground troops, concerned the country could face a repeat of the war in Iraq. He maintains the ensuing conflict could slowly drain resources, cost American lives and help with ISIS recruitment. Still, Americans seem to be moving in the opposite direction of the president here.
