Conservatives put little faith in President Obama’s strategy for the war against Islamic terrorists, according to a survey by FedUp PAC. Only 4% rated the President’s performance as excellent or good, while 95% labeled it as poor. The President’s speech following the San Bernardino terrorist attack made a mere 4% feel reassured about his strategy.
The possibility of getting help from the Muslim community, one of the foundation stones of the Obama strategy, was considered unlikely by 85%, while 94% expected Obama’s plan to bring in Syrian refugees would make it “much easier” for terrorists to continue their attacks in the United States.
Obama’s refusal to recognize that radical Islamic beliefs are the source of the terrorist threat was a concern for many, with 94% saying it was important for the President to acknowledge this truth.
Sending US ground troops to Syria and Iraq to fight Islamic terrorists had 57% support, with 20% opposed and 23% undecided. Donald Trump’s proposal for a halt in Muslim immigration to the United States was favored by 88%, while 73% agreed with Ben Carson’s idea of greater monitoring of internet activity. Eliminating the visa program that allowed Tashfeen Malik to enter the US had 87% in favor.
Only 5% expressed confidence in the Department of Homeland Security.
FedUp PAC is a grass roots organization that wants constitutional conservatives to take over the GOP because Americans are fed up with the Republican establishment. It is not affiliated with any candidate or committee.
