Shibley Telhami released the results of an opinion poll focused on Americans' attitudes toward ISIS* and the United States' strategy to defeat it. The poll showed that 70 percent of Americans believed ISIS was the biggest challenge facing the U.S. in the Middle East. Then Susan Glasser and E.J. Dionne joined in the discussion on how Americans view the U.S.-led fight against ISIS militants in Iraq and Syria.

“What Americans Think About the Fight Against ISIS” was hosted by the Brookings Project on U.S. Relations with the Islamic World.
