Poll: Few support Syrian refugees entering US
by Mark Hensch
Only 36 percent of U.S. voters support accepting Syrian refugees into the country, according to a Chicago Council on Global Affairs poll released on Monday.
Voters have mixed opinions on the best tactics for countering the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the survey found, with 72 percent backing continued airstrikes in Syria and 57 percent supporting more special operations forces.
Only 42 percent favor sending combat troops into Syria, which has suffered from civil war since 2011.
