Millennials Support Sending Ground Troops to Defeat ISIS

At the United Nations this week, world leaders considered varying approaches to curb ISIS. President Obama said, "Ideologies are not defeated with guns. They are defeated by better ideas." Also this week, Russia launched airstrikes in Syria, initially naming ISIS as the target, although reports say strikes are attacking other groups.  

US millennials aren't necessarily on the same page as the president. When we asked millennials about defeating ISIS in our April 2015 Harvard Public Opinion Project poll, 57 percent of young Americans supported sending ground troops.
