Most Say U.S. Defeating ISIS, Democrats Not So Sure

Most voters continue to view ISIS as a danger to U.S. national security but remain confident America is winning the war with the radical Islamic State terrorist group. Despite the recent killing of the two top ISIS leaders, however, Democrats are a lot less convinced that America is winning.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 59% of all Likely U.S. Voters believe the United States and its allies are winning the war against ISIS. Just 13% think ISIS is winning, while 17% say neither side is ahead. Eleven percent (11%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
