Obama Crushed in Military Poll

A good poll for McCain.

Military Times poll: Troops backing McCain

By Brendan McGarry

Sen. John McCain enjoys overwhelming support from the military’s professional core, a Military Times survey of nearly 4,300 readers, indicates, though career-oriented black service members strongly favored the Democratic Party candidate.

McCain, R-Ariz., handily defeated Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., 68 percent to 23 percent in a voluntary survey of 4,293 active-duty, National Guard and reserve subscribers and former subscribers to Army Times, Navy Times, Marine Corps Times and Air Force Times.

The results of the Military Times 2008 Election Poll are not representative of the opinions of the military as a whole. The group surveyed is older, more senior in rank and less ethnically diverse than the overall armed services.

But as a snapshot of careerists, the results suggest Democrats have gained little ground in their attempts to significantly chip away at a traditionally Republican voting bloc in campaign messages and legislative initiatives, such as the recent expansion of GI Bill benefits, experts said. (emphasis mine)

"Democrats have gained little ground in their attempts..." even with the GI Bill? The PDF for the poll is here. The results for the branch of service is interesting.

Army - McCain 68% Obama 23%

Navy - McCain 69% Obama 24%

Air Force - McCain 67% Obama 24%

Marines - McCain 75% Obama 18%

A clear message to the chosen one.

It just goes to show you how scared these guys are to speak out against Bush or in this case McCain. Everyone knows when your in the Military, You have tom side with the president. Who knows Bush may have there rooms tapped? I would say McCain also and then vote for Obama.

It was interesting that Hispanic members of the military were overwhelming for McCain as well.
