In response to BetheKoolaid's comment:
Dont believe for a minute that Obama gets big support politically from the US military....
CNN exit polling data from 2008 show miltary voters favored Republican John McCain over Obama by a 10-point margin, 54 to 44 percent...
Military Times poll October 2012: Poll results indicate that about 66 percent of those surveyed support Romney, compared with about 26 percent who say they will vote to re-elect President Obama
No, obviously the military enjoys sending their campaign donations to the guy they're not voting for.
And nearly twice as much...!
Can you explain the contradiction?
This is for donations all year...many donations by military were to Ron Paul and other GOP Presidential candidates during the primary. So overall, Obama got only 45% or so of the contributions from the military, less than half...
If they compute Obama vs Romney, after Romney was the GOP nominee, there will be a different result.
, "...eight of the 11 military branches the Center for Responsive Politics analyzed have given more to Republican presidential candidates -- most notably the Navy, the Air Force and the Marine Corps."
