Military Poll Shows Support for Romney

Move America Forward | October 11, 2012 

Presidential   candidate Mitt Romney finally dug into military and national security  issues today in a speech he delivered to the Virginia Military  Institute. Romney went after Obama’s passive foreign policy that is  inviting disaster and we’re seeing the results of that weak approach all  over the Middle East.
Here at Move America Forward, our disappointment at  Obama’s job performance on foreign policy as well as concern for the  future of our nation under such poor leadership is shared by many of our  troops, as evidenced by these recent Military Times poll numbers that show Romney with a  huge lead over Obama. This clearly shows  that our troops are not happy with their apologist-in-chief Barack  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.

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.

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. 

 The Military  Times poll shows that Republicans continue to enjoy overwhelming support  among the military’s professional ranks.

The President is quick to claim his foreign policy and national security doctrines as successful. He will tell all who listen that HE killed Osama Bin Laden, that democracy is taking shape in the Middle East under his direction.  But those who remember a United States of America that didn’t apologize for its strength, that treated allies as friends and enemies as enemies, will obviously not agree with his version of the last four years. We can’t afford another four years of Obama!     
Please help Move America Forward to produce a TV ad to show Americans what four more years of Obama will mean to our military and national security!
