It’s not to surprising that members of our armed services prefer Trump to Clinton. People who volunteer to protect America tend to be “America first” type folks.
The Military Times has the story:
Military Times survey: Troops prefer Trump to Clinton by a huge margin
In a new survey of American military personnel, Donald Trump emerged as active-duty service members’ preference to become the next U.S. president, topping Hillary Clinton by more than a 2-to-1 margin. However, in the latest Military Times election survey, more than one in five troops said they’d rather not vote in November if they have to choose between just those two candidates.
But given only those choices, 21 percent of the service members surveyed said they would abstain from voting.More than 54 percent of the 951 troops Military Times surveyed said they would vote for Trump, the presumed Republican presidential nominee, over Clinton, the Democratic front-runner. Only about 25 percent said they would vote for Clinton in that matchup.
The results, while not a scientific sampling of military voting patterns (see our methodology below), show strong support for Trump among troops despite critics’ attacks that he lacks foreign policy or national security experience.
It reflects well on Trump that he’s preferred by America’s finest.
