Veterans Showed Up For Biden This Year — And Trump Wants To Dump Military Ballots
The Military Times this week cited exit polling from Edison Research that showed 52 percent of military and veteran voters preferred President Donald Trump to Biden, who 45 percent preferred. That margin is much narrower than in 2016, when Trump enjoyed a 26-percent advantage, pulling in 60 percent to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s 34 percent.

Election analysts have warned about putting too much stock in exit polling this year and this early, but the Edison Research data is more reliable than most, as it surveyed both in-person and mail-in ballot voters (which some other pollsters failed to do).

The data is also consistent with other surveys of military and veteran voters, which showed Trump continually losing popularity among this group as he ignored reports of Russian bounties on American soldiers in Afghanistan, continued to fire defense officials at will, and reportedly called veterans who died “suckers and losers.” This also came after years of Trump denigrating Gold Star families like that of Khizr Khan’s and constantly attacking POW hero, the late Sen. John McCain, a Republican from Arizona.

By comparison, Biden is a Blue Star father who has spoken frequently and forcefully of the sacrifice his late son Beau Biden and other American soldiers have made. (Beau died of cancer in 2015 and was active in the Army National Guard before that.) During his time as Vice President, Biden and his wife Jill Biden focused on veterans’ issues, emphasizing the “sacred obligation” the country owes its veterans.

Remember when I cautioned you that Google would often mislead you?   And here you are, still Googling.    Hint: specific search engines will give you better results.

Big woop.   I am a blue star father, the son of a blue star father also I am retired military .  We have had a member of my family in every war including the revolutionary war.  I don’t know anyone in the military who said they would or did vote for Biden.  I think your so called research as usual is bunk.

Not according to the people actually in the military...

 The latest Military Times poll shows a continued decline in active-duty service members’ views of President Donald Trump and a slight but significant preference for former Vice President Joe Biden in the upcoming November election among troops surveyed.

The results, collected before the political conventions earlier this month, appear to undercut claims from the president that his support among military members is strong thanks to big defense budget increases in recent years and promised moves to draw down troops from overseas conflict zones.

But the Military Times Polls, surveying active-duty troops in partnership with the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University, have seen a steady drop in troops’ opinion of the commander in chief since his election four years ago.

In the latest results — based on 1,018 active-duty troops surveyed in late July and early August — nearly half of respondents (49.9 percent) had an unfavorable view of the president, compared to about 38 percent who had a favorable view. Questions in the poll had a margin of error of up to 2 percent.

Among all survey participants, 42 percent said they “strongly” disapprove of Trump’s time in office.

The Military Times is published and written by troops for troops.   So their take has more credibility.    Trump did worse with our troops than any republican since Landon.

Trump deciding to bad-mouth General Mattis was a huge mistake.   Mattis was a "soldier's general", who cared deeply about the troops, and he was highly respected in all services.

That's just your opinion and you have a poor track record on valid opinions.

Confirmation bias runs deep in you as you scurry around the Internet looking for fake news to support your claims.

I kept wondering why this poll, if correct, was opposite of what I hear from numerous friends and relatives in the military - and military people I follow online. How could this be? I never heard all these active duty military people shouting rah-rah for Biden. I never saw a sign of it during the campaign.

After I read the article, I went on to read the numerous comments on the article and found the majority of them claiming to be military and how the poll and article are BS. Many comments said the Military Times has turned into a left wing propaganda machine. It was also interesting to see the readers who did their homework and checked out everyone involved in conducting the poll and writing the article and how their social media accounts were nothing but vile hatred for President Trump and even link to their accounts. It just takes a few minutes to check out the poll taker and article writer to see their blatant bias. Your claims of how the poll is so credible is laughable.

There also appears to be many questions about the polling demographics. Notice they list certain demographics, but conveniently leave out the ranks.

The reader comments were quite interesting - and telling. Glad I took the time to read the comment section instead of just the left wing article.

He not only supports that pro-abort fake president, but also that tranny Joe brought in who supports taking kids off the street for gender reassignment surgery - at our expense.

It's the one common thing between them.

That news site is run by troops for troops.  So more credibility than someone who never even served.

Confirmation bias?    The men and woman in uniform who operate that news outlet employed a pollster to get an accurate sample of the opinion of their fellow troops.   And the election data confirms their findings.    Trump did worse with our military forces than any candidate since Alf Landon.

Many comments said the Military Times has turned into a left wing propaganda machine. 

People who buy it are, not surprisingly, military people and their families, skewed toward career people.   So it does reflect their values.

There also appears to be many questions about the polling demographics. Notice they list certain demographics, but conveniently leave out the ranks.

That's not an unreasonable issue to bring up:

 But she noted the poll, which has been administered in the same way for the past four years, is not a perfect snapshot of public opinion within the entire military force. The average age of poll respondents was nearly 39 years, and the participant pool was culled and verified from Military Times subscriber lists and databases.

Feaver said the poll “is a good sample of the career-oriented military members’ views, which may be different from the junior enlisted view of things.”

“But the president claims he has been good for the military, that they’re grateful that he has rescued them from the shambles. This shows that’s not the case with all of the military.”

The splits between officer and enlisted views within the poll are notable. More than 59 percent of officers said they have a poor view of the president, with more than half saying they strongly disapprove.

Among enlisted respondents, 47 percent said they have an unfavorable view, and nearly 39 percent a favorable view. Enlisted views of Trump’s performance in office have consistently been more favorable than those of officers in the poll over the last four years.

Feaver said that could be due to officers’ predisposition to long-term military careers, and a negative reaction to Trump’s comments against the “deep state” and other career federal positions.

The national Gallup Poll of Trump’s job performance conducted just before the political conventions found that 55 percent of Americans had a negative view of the president, against 42 percent who approved of his work. Feaver said with any poll of service members, it is important to remember that those broader public views also play a factor.

“The military tends to follow broad shifts in the opinion of the American public, albeit trending more conservative,” he said. “So as the country moves away from Trump, you’ll see that in the military too.”

This is consistent with data showing that Trump did poorly with people having at least some college; officers and senior NCOs would be more likely to have a college education, and the Military Times readership tends to be just those people.
