Support for troops in Syria?

More Americans are willing to send U.S. combat troops to the Middle East to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), according to a new AP/GfK poll. Forty-two percent of Americans favour deploying troops to fight ISIS, up from 31 percent in a poll conducted early this year. Thirty-two percent oppose sending troops, while 22 percent were undecided. Seventy-four percent of respondents said they think it is likely the U.S. will deploy ground troops, including 43 percent who said it was “moderately likely,” and 31 percent who said it was “extremely/very likely.” Respondents were not asked about the number of troops. The Obama administration announced weeks ago that up to 50 special forces would be deployed to Syria”.
