Republican presidential candidates vowed on Monday to take a tougher approach toward Islamic State militants, with Jeb Bush saying a larger Middle East troop presence is needed and Donald Trump saying he would consider closing some mosques in the United States.

The impact of Friday's attacks in Paris on the US campaign for the November 2016 presidential election has been swift and powerful, with national security thrust back to the top of voter concerns.

In a Reuters/Ipsos poll of 1,483 US adults conducted after the attacks, 63 percent said a Paris-style assault could happen near them, and 60 percent said more should be done to counter Islamic State.

But a strong majority reflected America's war weariness after 14 years of conflict since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The poll found 76 percent opposed sending regular ground troops to the region.
