It irritates me when people assume that US military people vote Republican. We’re humans, which means that we are not all the same, and plenty of us are reliable Democratic voters. Trump the war-mongering draft-dodger? A poll in October of last year by the Military Times (the most recent one I can find today) showed the following:

- Only 30% of officers support him
- Only 47% of enlisted personnel support him
- 38% of enlisted personnel view him unfavorably
I’ve written a number of times about why his approval ratings are so low in the military–today I’ll just leave you with this link to a nice article about veterans running for office in 2018 as Democrats.
