A record number of Americans believe President Obama does not have a clear plan on battling ISIS, according to a newly-released poll conducted by CBS News.

The poll was conducted through telephone over November 19-22, 2015, a week after deadly attacks in Paris killed more than 100 people. More than 1,200 Americans were surveyed. 

Among the poll's highlights were record numbers on both sides of the issue. CBS News reports only 23% of those surveyed believe President Obama has a clear plan in fighting the militant group, a new low. Conversely, 66% of Americans do not believe he has a clear plan, a record high. 

In considering military usage, 50% favor sending military troops to Syria and Iraq to battle ISIS. That's in stark contrast to the current directive, which is to continue striking from the skies and only offering help and training to local soldiers on the ground. More so, 63% now believe that ground troops will be necessary in order to defeat the threat ISIS poses.
