Washington Times: 98 percent of Republican military veterans approve of Trump: Poll

President Trump has some unwavering support from a very unique demographic: Republican military veterans. An extensive new Pew Research Center reveals that 98 percent of these GOP vets approve of the job Mr. Trump is doing. He has some fans across the greater population of vets as well. The poll also found that 54 percent of them also approve of the president.

Another 47 percent of independent vets and 10 percent of Democratic vets approve of the president.

“U.S. veterans, who broadly supported Donald Trump in the 2016 election, have remained positive about the job he is doing as president,” wrote Shiva Maniam, and analyst for the pollster.

“In April, 54 percent of those who have served in the military approved of his job performance. Trump’s job approval among the overall public was just 39%, according to the same survey, which was conducted using Pew Research Center’s American Trends Panel,” Mr. Maniam said.

WNU Editor: Only 54%? This is a low number for a U.S. Republican President.

That strikes me as a rather low number since from what I know, recall, etc., those in armed forces tend to vote right of center and admire tough talking person, no matter what self interest (V.A., wars, pay etc) may be.

Even soldiers can recognize a buffoon, especially one that could get them killed through a stream of consciousness tweet.

This poll is likey scewed low. Just like every single other Trump-related poll all through the election. As a vet I have several friends and family still on active duty. The difference in attitude towards Trump is 180 degrees from Obama. Obama was held in total contempt by rank and file service members while Trump is enthusiastically supported. Relaxation of paralyzing ROE has improved morale considerably. But Trump does need to outline a strategy in AFG after 8 years dithering incompetence by Obama.

The MSM press can skew poll numbers 20% easily and for long periods of time.

WNU is not up on his psychodynamics.
