No matter what way you look at it, most members of the military support Donald Trump. the nation’s active military favors Donald Trump for president over Hillary Clinton by a 2-1 margin, a new survey shows.
The Military Times polling also shows service members are overwhelmingly dissatisfied with both presumptive nominees.
Here’s the breakdown in support, according to Military Times:
- Trump: 49 percent
- Clinton: 21 percent
- Libertarian Gary Johnson: 13 percent
- Third-party candidate: 23 percent
- Won’t vote: 7 percent
Among the other findings of the poll were that more than 61 percent said they were dissatisfied with Trump, including 28 percent who intend to vote for him. Additionally, more than 82 percent said they were dissatisfied with Clinton, including 30 percent who will vote for her.
Despite the fact that most of the men and women in our armed forces support Trump, an anti-Trump Tweet somehow made its way onto the U.S. Army’s Twitter account.
As the Federalist Papers reported:
The U.S. Army sent out a partisan message on Twitter about GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump that read, “Trump Lies Once Every 3 Minutes, 15 Seconds,” along with an article from an LGBT advocate site titled “New Civil Rights Movement.”
The tweet was swiftly removed from the Army’s Twitter page, but not before a screenshot of the tweet was obtained. The deleted tweet quickly went viral via a Facebook post by the page “U.S. Army W.T.F. Moments.”
The post reads: Here at USAWTFM, we treat our page and our Twitter account very seriously.
Our admins have clearances, great levels of responsibility, and some of us could be professionally ruined for being involved with this page. As many of you may know, we’re also IDIOTS. With that said, you don’t see us “accidentally” posting links to partisan political viewpoints on our online presences.
Think it was actually an accident, or did the Tweet simply result in more blowback than they expected, resulting in them deleting it before any more pushback rolled in?
Clearly the Tweet didn’t reflect the views of most members of the army. So who was it responsible for the post? It’s anyone’s guess for now, but the truth will come out eventually…
