National Presidential Tracking Survey
Conducted February 6-7, 2015
Survey of 800 Likely Voters
1* How closely have you followed recent news stories about the radical Islamic State Group, also known as ISIS?
2* President Obama is expected to ask Congress to authorize the use of more military force against ISIS up to and including ground forces back in Iraq. Should the United States send combat troops back to Iraq as part of an international coalition to fight ISIS?
3* Will ISIS’ burning to death of a captured Jordanian pilot this week and the subsequent outrage in several Muslim countries lead to more Muslim support for the fight against ISIS?
4* Do you agree or disagree with the president that ISIS does not represent true Islamic beliefs?
5* In reference to ISIS’ violent acts, someone said this week that the use of religion to justify violence and killings “is not unique to one group or one religion” and cited the Crusades and slavery as examples of terrible deeds done “in the name of Christ.” Do you agree or disagree with this comparison?
