The latest Military Times poll shows an overwhelming majority of military personnel favoring a Mitt Romney victory against Barack Obama in 2012 with the two most important issues being those of character and the economy. If Barack Obama as Commander in Chief is so lacking in support among our military, shouldn’t he also then lose support as president among America’s civilian population as well?
Military Times Poll: Romney bests Obama, 2-1
The professional core of the U.S. military overwhelmingly favors Mitt Romney over President Obama in the upcoming election — but not because of any particular military issues, according to a new poll of more than 3,100 active and reserve troops.
Respondents rated the economy and the candidates’ character as their most important considerations.
Almost 80 percent of respondents have a college degree — including 27 percent with a graduate degree and more than 11 percent with a post-graduate degree — while an additional 18.5 percent have some college under their belts.
And they are battle-hardened; almost 29 percent have spent more than two cumulative years deployed since 9/11, while a similar percentage has spent one to two cumulative years deployed.
