#AceNewsReport – Dec.08: The one exception was Pakistan, where a majority — 62 percent — had no opinion about the terror group. Still, 28 percent said they had an unfavorable view of ISIS, and just nine percent said they had a favorable view.

Republican front-runner Donald Trump on Monday called for a “complete” shutdown of Muslims entering the U.S. as a national security measure until U.S. leaders “can figure out what is going on.” Trump’s proposal includes tourists and Muslims entering the U.S. on visas and comes after last week’s rampage in San Bernardino, carried out by a Muslim couple who authorities believe had been radicalized into following an extreme form of Islam.
