    If the Capital Eye is in any way related to Helium, it's a leftist rag, and I wouldn't trust any poll they conducted or anything else they print.

    OpenSecrets | Troops Deployed Abroad Give 6:1 to Obama - Capital Eye

    It's a true story but the OP title is misleading and it was not a poll. Of the 323 donations made by "Troops stationed abroad" this quarter 134 gave money to Obama while just 26 went to John McCain. (99 to Ron Paul, lol)

    Contributions from 'All Military Personnel' are much closer than the overseas numbers and the article did not say if "overseas" means Iraq or all our bases around the globe. When it comes to polls and voting, chances are we see a fairly typical Republican swing by the military.

    Well, let me ask you all this.


    Do you think the people who donated money to Obama's campaign did it because they hope he can bring them home to their families before McCain can?

    It's interedting that the troops most likely to see danger, the Marines, favor McCain in donations. However, like I tried to point out above, this sample is just too small to be meaningful.

    Meh, whoever our troops send money to or vote for... they earned their say. God Bless em.

    No, they donated the $$ because they're socialists who want to see the US diminished and contained within her own borders.
