CNN poll: Americans as alarmed by ISIS now, as by al Qaeda post 9/11

Washington (CNN) - Americans are increasingly concerned that ISIS represents a direct terror threat, fearful that ISIS agents are living in the United States, according to a new CNN/ORC International poll. Most now support military action against the terrorist group.

Seven in 10 Americans believe ISIS has the resources to launch an attack against the United States, just days before President Barack Obama plans to address the nation on the subject.

The poll released Monday shows that Americans favor:

- Additional airstrikes against ISIS (76% favor, 23% oppose)

- Military aid to forces fighting ISIS (62% favor, 37% oppose)

- Providing humanitarian aid to people fleeing ISIS (83% favor, 16% oppose)
