Few issues are as polarizing as the involvement of the American military in conflicts around the world, particularly in the Middle East. Infographics play a crucial role in distilling public opinion and making it clear exactly what people think about issues like this one.

This simple infographic appears to show that over half of all Americans support sending ground troops to fight ISIS. While the USA has been involved in aerial strikes in Iraq and Syria, this infographic shows that 53% of Americans believe in upscaling American involvement via ground troops.

Unsurprisingly, the proportions vary depending on the political affiliation of respondents. 69% of Republicans are in favor of American ground troop involvement, compared to 44% of Democrats and 50% of Independents.
