Voters Now More Confident U.S. Is Winning War Against ISIS

Wednesday, February 07, 2018

The United States is expected to begin pulling troops out of Iraq after the government there declared victory over the Islamic State Group (ISIS), and more voters now agree that  America  and its allies have won that war.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 58% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the United States and its allies are winning the war against ISIS, up from 47% in September. Just nine percent (9%) now believe ISIS is winning that war, down from 16%, while 21% believe neither side is winning. Another 12% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
