As always in times of war, a majority of American back the US military’s campaign against ISIS, with 78 percent who approves of the US-led airstrikes in Syria and Iraq, a new poll conducted for Fox News showed.
At the same time, a majority of 57 percent believe defeating ISIS will take ground troops as opposed to airstrikes alone. By a 52-42 percent margin, voters favor adding ground troops if airstrikes aren’t enough to defeat ISIS. Republicans favor it by a wide 66-29 percent margin. A similar majority of Democrats oppose it (52-42 percent).
