SHARE Most Americans worry about Obama’s lack of strategy on ISIS

A new poll shows that voters consider Islamic terrorist group ISIS as a major threat to the United States and have an overwhelming amount of concern over President Barack Obama’s strategy — or lack thereof — to deal with the problem.

The Rasmussen Reports survey showed 67 percent of likely voters said ISIS is a serious threat. Of those polled, 73 percent said they are very concerned after Obama said last week that the U.S. doesn’t have a strategy for dealing with the group. Overall, 47 percent say they are “very concerned.”

The breakdown along party lines, from Rasmussen:

“Just 52% of Democrats consider ISIS a serious threat to the United States, compared to 82% of Republicans and 70% of voters not affiliated with either major party.”
