President Obama Gets Low Marks From U.S. Military Personnel And Veterans

U.S. Military Personnel, Veterans Give Obama Lower Marks -- Gallop

Younger, active-duty military less likely to have an opinion on Obama either way.

PRINCETON, NJ -- U.S. military veterans and those currently on active military duty are less likely to approve of President Obama's job performance than are Americans of comparable ages who are not in the military.

These results are based on an analysis of more than 238,000 interviews conducted as part of Gallup Daily tracking from January 2010 through April 2011. Respondents were classified as veterans/active-duty military based on responses to a series of questions probing whether any member of the household had served in the U.S. military, and whether the respondent himself or herself had served and, if so, whether the respondent was currently on active duty. Americans currently serving in the military overseas or on ships at sea would not be included in this national cell and landline telephone sample.

My Comment: This is a large sample .... taken over a long period of time. By this time next year .... the results could be something entirely different.
