    Russia Versus ISIL in Syria (618)

    Half of the US population believes that Obama failed in Syria compared to Russian president Vladimir Putin, a Fox News poll said on Wednesday.

    Most US citizens expressed skepticism towards Barack Obama’s statement of Russian intervening in Syria as a weakness and disapproved of his lack of clear plan over the situation in Middle East, a Fox News poll has recently revealed.

    Fifty-three percent of people claimed that it’s Putin who gained the upper hand in Syria, while only 22 percent said Obama took control over the situation in the region.

    Obama’s estimation of the Russian military operation against ISIL in Syria as a “weak and desperate” has been supported only by 29 percent of respondents whereas 46 percent consider Russia as “strong and shrewd”.

    The poll says that record-breaking 70 percent of Americans doubt the US has any coherent plan on how to deal with crisis in Syria. The US has been bombing the self-proclaimed Islamic State terrorist group since December 2014, however there was very little success in destroying any targets.

    Mid-September marked the time when Putin launched a military operation against ISIL in Syria upon the request of Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad, which Obama has called an act of weakness.

    According to new poll, some 52 percent of Americans fully rebuke Obama for his actions in Middle East, saying he is a “weak and indecisive leader” on the world stage.

    The Fox News survey was conducted from October 10–12, interviewing more than 1,000 people from all over the county.
