Alex Griswold Media Reporter

According to a new Fox News poll, nearly three-fourths of Americans believe that President Barack Obama has no clear strategy to defeat ISIS, and more than half disapprove of his handling of foreign policy and terrorism.

When asked if they “think the Obama administration has a clear strategy for defeating the Islamic extremist group ISIS,” 73 percent of Americans say no, compared to only 18 percent who say yes. These numbers represent a noticeable drop from last September, when only 64 percent believed the Obama administration has no strategy, and 26 percent believed he did.

Even Democrats are more likely to believe Obama has no ISIS strategy, 54 percent to 32 percent. By contrast, only 44 percent of Democrats believed Obama didn’t have an strategy to defeat ISIS in September. (VIDEO: Lindsey Graham On Obama’s ISIS Strategy: ‘I Don’t Think He Wants To Win’)

Meanwhile, 42 percent approve of Obama’s handling of terrorism and 39 percent approve of his handling of foreign policy, while 53 percent of respondents disapprove of his handling of both issues.
