Romneys larger lead is a sign that veterans are dissatisfied with Obama, rather than pleased particularly with Romney Romney, after all, was not a military man while McCain famously was. The poll did not ask military vets about their feelings on the end of dont ask, dont tell. Despite Obamas attempts to pander to veterans by offering them larger benefits and suggesting that we build a country worthy of our returning vets, Americas military men and women continue to prefer hawkish foreign policy and fiscal responsibility to appeasement-oriented foreign policy and heavy spending....

Closer then I would have guessed.
I’d like to see the demographic breakdown. I’m guessing blacks, homos, and women skew it towards Obama.
Clearly we have a 35% problem.
I’d like to see the numbers for combat veterans only.

Too many REMFs in the demo is my guess.
I can’t say much since I had a cushy job even by USAF standards. I have always voted (R) though.
Bad news is that there are 35% who will be will be killing the Constitution-loving Americans when the snake-king gives the word shortly after his inauguration.
Good news is....is.....is....
Hmmm! How can a poll showing that only 59% of our veterans are still America-loving Americans contain any "good" news?
We’re probably both right.
As smoothsailing pointed out, the combat vets are probably way more against Obama. I don’t care what some admin woman thinks. What percentage do you think USMC infantry think highly of Obama?
They pretty much follow the Obama line to the the tune of about 90%. It isn't much better than the 96% of the general population of African-Americans who slavishly devote themselves to the cult of the false messiah.
There are some "Lt Col West" members of the military in the minority ranks, but not as many as you would hope.
Blacks make up bigger percentage of military than general population.
The military is now half gays and/or females?
Gen pop is around 12 or 13
Military around 25?
God bless those loyal to God and the Church.
(And not the government)
What a shame, military service affords them a golden oppotunity to escape the dem plantation.
Pentagon says: 26% Army, 18.5% Navy
I look askance at Romney because he never served when there was opportunity to do so. However, there is even more to dislike about Obama even though he has perfunctory experience as CinC. I am very surprised the liking for Obama is at 35%. Of course with more homos popping out and the number of service people of color, physical and psychological, it might be expected to be at 35%. I can only hope that some of the 35% persons will come to realize that Obama really doesn’t share their declared dedication to the Constitution for an exceptional Nation and without doubt not battle courage to keep such.
I call BS. My cuz is stationed in South Korea and he knows most of the senior officers, NCO’s at Red Cloud and he knows no one in that camp who likes Odumbo.
The REMF’s however...are a different matter.
Yeah, but will their votes be counted?

I could never understand the “Combat Arms” types (I read your bio) and their denigrating of logistics and supply personnel by calling them “Rear Echelon MOTHER F———?”
First, I’m offended at being called a MOTHER F-—— for obvious reasons.
Beyond that, I worked my butt off 18-20 hours a day for eight months during OPS DESERT SHIELD AND DESERT STORM pushing supplies to forward Marine Division, Marine Wing and Marine Combat Service Support units AND in some cases to ARMY units from my base of operations. During the build-up in OPS DESERT SHIELD we didn’t have any place to “rotate back” to for “REST AND RECREATION”... we WORKED the entire time.
Yes, pushing YOUR fuel, ammunition, chow, much needed water forward; providing YOUR maintenance contact teams and calling in air med-evac teams to pull “Combat Arms” guys like you back to the “Rear Echelon” after you got your butts shot up.
Pray tell, three questions, if you should care to answer or even have a valid answer:
1. Why are logistics and supply types like me “MOTHER F———?”
2. How do you suppose you would get YOUR much needed fuel, ammunition, chow and water, etc. if it was not for us “Rear Echelon MOTHER F———?”
3. Why would you make a blanket assumption that we would be in a demographic that would support a fraud and usurper like Obama?

I refer you to my Post #23 below. Can you also answer my three questions?
In 2008 Obama got 44% of the military vote and now it seems he’ll get around 35% if this poll is accurate.
No need to take anything I post personally. Thank you for your service.
In 2008 Obama got 44% of the military vote and now it seems hell get around 35% if this poll is accurate.
This is vet vote, not all current military
If it is higher than 10-15% I would be both shocked and disheartened.
Might even mean that this year's Corps birthday party, the 60th I'll celebrate, will require lots of alcohol followed by 3-4 days at the range clearing the hangover...
“...lots of alcohol followed by 3-4 days at the range clearing the hangover...”
Sounds like a good plan either way.
