When it comes to key issues such as the Islamic State (ISIS), income inequality and immigration, a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday shows a deep divide among Iowa voters, Politico reports.

"Iowa, with the caucuses that kick off the 2016 election, is a perfect example of just how differently Democrats and Republicans see completely different worlds," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll.

According to the poll, likely Republican caucus-goers say 70 percent to 25 percent that the federal government should not attempt to reduce the income gap between wealthy Americans and the rest of the population.

Democrats, however, say 91 percent to 6 percent that the government should make efforts to reduce income inequality.

With immigration being a hot topic for the 2016 presidential election, 46 percent of likely GOP caucus-goers said that immigrants in the country illegally should be required to leave. Thirty-four percent said that illegal immigrants should stay and be granted a path to citizenship, while 17 percent said illegal immigrants should stay with no path to citizenship.

Among Democrats, 83 percent say illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay and apply for citizenship, while 9 percent say they should stay but with no path to citizenship, and 8 percent say they should be required to leave.

Republican and Democrats also poll on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to battling ISIS. Seventy-two percent to 23 percent of Republicans are in support of sending ground troops to Iraq and Syria. Democrats, on the other hand, are against sending troops to battle the terror group, 63 percent to 29 percent.

When it comes to the next leader of our nation, the poll shows that Republicans and Democrats agree that having a president with experience and knowledge is more beneficial than a president with new ideas.

Fifty-five percent to 42 percent of Republicans said that they would be in support of a candidate with the right experience over a new face, while 50 percent to 43 percent of Democrats agreed.

From June 20-29, Quinnipiac University surveyed 666 likely Iowa Republican Caucus participants with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points, and 761 likely Iowa Democratic Caucus participants with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.
