After losing a major stronghold in Iraq, the Islamic State group (ISIS) may be close to defeat on the ground there, and voters here think the United States definitely has the edge on its radical rival of recent years.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters think the United States and its allies are winning the war against ISIS. Just 16% think ISIS is winning that war, while 29% say neither side is winning. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on September 14 and 17, 2017 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
