CBS News Poll: 66% Think Obama Has No Idea What to do About ISIS

Only 66%? Really? His plan, actually, is to blame Republicans.

Over 6 in 10 Americans believe President Obama lacks a coherent strategy for combating the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), according to a new poll.

Approximately 66 percent think Obama has no clear plan for defeating the terrorist organization, according to the CBS News poll.

Only 23 percent, meanwhile, say the president has articulated a definitive blueprint for fighting the extremist group.

Support for sending U.S. ground troops overseas against ISIS is also growing, pollsters found. Half of Americans now favor that outcome, a rise of 4 points since August.

Most Americans – 63 percent – are convinced U.S. boots on the ground are unavoidable for ultimately defeating ISIS.

Just 20 percent think airstrikes alone can eliminate the radical Islamist organization.

Monday’s poll also discovered Americans are nearly split over whether the U.S. should open its borders for Syrian refugees.

About 50 percent reject accepting displaced Syrians, versus 47 percent who would admit refugees under stricter screening measures.

Approximately 78 percent, meanwhile, say more rigorous vetting methods are necessary for the refugee system now.

Meanwhile, Obama said the GOP is doing the work for the terrorists. And he wonder why nobody trusts him.
