  • Voters Remain Cool to Boots on the Ground in Iraq

    Voters are more convinced that the radical Islamic State group (ISIS) is winning the war in Iraq but are less enthusiastic than ever about sending U.S. troops back into action to do something about it.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 35% of Likely U.S. Voters now favor sending combat troops back to Iraq as part of an international coalition to fight ISIS. That’s down from 40% two months ago and from a high of 52% in early February.
