The New York Times has published a poll that finds disapproval in the way President Obama id dealing with the crises in Iraq. The poll, as Politico’s Glenn Thrush explains, is paradoxical because Americans may “basically back his foreign policy – but think he’s a weakling for pursuing it.”

A new Washington Post – ABC News poll this week showed Americans’ opinions of the president’s handling of the situation in Iraq have hit an all-time low. The poll found 52 percent disapprove of the way President Obama is dealing with the crises in Iraq. Just 42 percent approve of the president’s handling of the Iraqi situation. The poll showed Americans are divided about whether to launch airstrikes in Iraq to combat ISIS with 45 percent indicating support and 46 percent opposing it. 65 percent said they were against deploying ground troops and 30 percent expressed support.

What do you think?
