This is what helped elect Bush in '04. Obama supporters ought to quit counting their chickens.
Coming from a vet.... all I can say is "Duh"... it is pretty obvious which candidate the military would/will support.. even if this is only a small sample poll and the numbers are not exact or accurate, I think it is a pretty safe assumption
So much for "all polls mean jack shit", eh?
Oh, and this was an internet poll. It admits it is "non-scientific".
As stated... whether the poll is accurate in numbers or not... it is a pretty safe assumption as to which candidate soldiers are backing... we're not going to know exact numbers from things like this, but just talk to vets and current soldiers.. and know the kind of things soldiers support
nice try though
The military tends to be predominately conservative, always has been. It is the nature of the beast. However there are less then 2 million people in the military, I don't think they are that big a factor this election.
*shrug* fine, but your welcome to say that as an opinion, not as an opinion backed up by poll-related facts, since its not. Well not any poll that should be trusted anyway.
Outright lie. These votes are the easiest to steal. From both ends too.
Republicans caged black soldiers.
The Republican party sends registered mail to addresses of registered voters. If the mail is returned as undeliverable - because, for example, the voter refuses to sign for it, the voter isn't present for delivery, is serving in Iraq or the voter is homeless - the party uses that fact to challenge the registration, arguing that because the voter could not be reached at the address, the registration is fraudulent.
Of course they can't be reached. They are serving our country in Iraq.
Try actually experiencing the military, knowing the culture, knowing the mentality...
take polls for the entertainment value that is all that they are....
The Military Times offered certain caveats for its poll, which was open only to its 80,000 subscribers. Responses were entirely voluntary and were not focused on a representative sample of the public, as scientific polls are. The troops polled were also somewhat older than average enlisted servicemembers and included more officers than is representative of the military as a whole.
The service members that I know are voting for Obama. This poll has all the validity of a fox news or matt drudge poll. whooptyfuckingdoo.
It couldn't possibly be that your own discomfort with the very real possibility of Obama as our President is the real reason you want liberals to cease and desist? Could it?
