Military Strongly in Camp Trump


2016-09-07-196205c8_large.jpg


Over the years, Republican presidential candidates have enjoyed strong support from the military and veterans, and this election is no different. A poll released this week shows Donald Trump with a commanding 19-point lead over Hillary Clinton among military and veteran voters. Compared with the three prior presidential elections, Trump's current support among the military is second only to Mitt Romney, who won the military vote by 20 points. Those margins have a lot to do with how frequently both Obama and Clinton have betrayed our military.

In spite of the release earlier this year of a letter signed by 50 Republican national security advisers stating that Trump would be the "most reckless president in American history," the real estate mogul has continued to pick up military and veteran support. He recently received the endorsement of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, with whom Trump did a town hall meeting in Virginia Beach — where Trump accused Clinton of treating immigrants better than veterans. He has also received support from Major General Sidney Shachnow, a 40-year veteran and Holocaust survivor who said that Trump "has the temperament to be commander in chief."

While there are those who have voiced their concerns about Trump's views on foreign policy, citing for example his remarks regarding Russia and the war in Iraq, what may be more telling is just how un-liked and distrusted Clinton is by many military personnel and veterans. When those who have taken the oath to defend this nation at risk of life and limb are presented with the choice — Donald Trump and his call to make America first, or Hillary Clinton, whose propensity for untruthfulness is seemingly limitless — the choice seems rather obvious
