An October/November survey by the Harvard Institute of Politics and covering the midsection (adults between 18 and 29) of the “millennial” demographic found that after the November terror attacks in France (but before the December 2 attack in San Bernardino), that demographic’s support for deployment of U.S. ground troops against the Islamic State in Iraq & Syria jumped from 47 percent to 60 percent.

But when asked a followup question – “If the United States needed additional troops to combat the Islamic State, how likely would you be to serve?" – 85 percent responded “probably won’t join” or “won’t join.”

Assuming that all or nearly all of the 40 percent who oppose a ground war answered “probably not” or “heck no,” it follows that the other 45 percent who answered that way support the idea as long as it doesn’t involve actually putting on uniforms, picking up rifles, and placing their own lives on the line.
