Military Times Poll: Romney Bests Obama, 2 to1, 66% to 21%


A Military Times poll appears to want a new Commander in Chief …

A Military Times Poll selects Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney over Barack Obama by a 2 to 1 margin as to who they want as Commander in Chief. The poll indicated that about 66% of those surveyed supported Romney, while only about 26% said they would vote to re-elect President Obama. It would appear that they are also tired of the Campaigner in Chief Obama.

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 and all but ignored the war in Afghanistan as an issue of concern.

The Military Times Poll is a secure email survey of active-duty, National Guard and reserve members who are subscribers to the Military Times newspapers (see How We Did It, below).

This population is older and more senior than the military population at large, but it is representative of the professional core of the all-volunteer force.

The 3,100 respondents — roughly two-thirds active-duty and one-third reserve component members — are about 80 percent white and 91 percent male. Forty percent are in paygrades E-5 through E-8, while more than 35 percent are in paygrades O-3 through O-5.

      When the military has a commander in chief who has zero experience in anything other than community organizing for a left-wing Chicago organization, they have little respect for his ability to take care of their needs.

      This two to one margin is the very reason that the Democrats are doing all they can to supress the military vote.

      it’s no wonder that the obama administration has been so slow in delivering absentee ballots to our warfighters.

      just another example of obama’s chicago style corrupt political practices.
