The majority of those Americans polled expect the extremist group to attack, including 48 percent who think it is "very likely," according to the poll released Wednesday. Moreover, 21 percent put Islamic State only second to the president's list of priorities, and 56 percent disapprove Obama's handling of the Islamic extremist group.
Another 59 percent of those polled think that if the United States captures IS terrorists, the prisoners should be taken to the Guantanamo Bay detention center in Cuba instead of a federal prison.
The Fox News poll is based on telephone interviews conducted December 7 through December 9 with 1,043 registered US voters.
IS, also known as ISIS or ISIL, is an extremist jihadist group, which has been fighting against the Syrian government since 2012. In June 2014, the group established a caliphate governed by a strict version of Sharia law on northern and western Iraq territories under their control.
To impede the group's advance, the United States has created an international coalition of over 60 allies of Washington and is currently conducting airstrikes against the IS targets in Iraq and Syria.
