Topic: ISIS (5/5) - Obama's worst issue
Overall, do you think the U.S. military response to ISIS has been:
Too Aggressive: 4%
Not Aggressive Enough: 68%
About Right: 26%
No Opinion: 3%
In perhaps the most telling poll of all, 68 percent of Americans believe the nation’s military response to ISIS hasn’t been aggressive enough, while only 4 percent think the nation has been too aggressive. While about one in four Americans think Obama’s response has been about right, the overwhelming majority wish the president had done more.
At this point, Obama’s response to ISIS stands as the most likely blemish on his presidency, at least from what the polls would indicate. But just as we’ve seen with past presidents, the coming years will verify whether today’s polls will truly reflect the president’s eventual legacy.
