Majority Dissaprove of Obama’s Islamic State Approach

As the Islamic State continues to pose a threat in the Middle East, as well as expanding its influence in the West, disapproval towards President Obama’s handling of the group is also growing, according to a new CNN/ORC.

The survey finds that 57 percent of Americans disapprove of the president’s strategy regarding the extremist militants who have conquered large swaths of land in Iraq and Syria. The number is up from the 49 percent who disapproved in September of last year.

Meanwhile, 40 percent approve of his handling, according to the poll.

Fifty-eight percent of respondents described U.S. military action as going “moderately badly” or “very badly” (37 percent for the former; 21 percent for the latter).

Overall, 57 percent said they disapprove of President Obama’s general foreign policy.
