    Armed Forces Donate To Obama Over Romney Nearly Twice as Much

    http://www.opensecrets.org/news/2012/10/armed-forces-show-overwhelming-supp.html

     

    Donor  Obama  Romney   

    Defense Acquisition University             $0     $1,000        

    National Defense University         $300             $0       

    National Guard     $7,507     $4,490  

    NATO         $250             $0            

    US Air Force   $69,532   $54,170  

    US Army $165,646   $87,218  

    US Coast Guard   $12,122     $4,700  

    US Dept of Defense $176,121   $71,043  

    US Marine Corps   $16,168   $16,120  

    US Military      $2,112     $5,491    

    US Navy   $86,656   $43,203  

    Total $536,414 $287,435 

     

    Looking forward to that foreign policy debate next week...which Mitt probably should have requested to be first instead of last, since he has no experience in that area, except for pissing off England, pandering to Poland and kneeling at the altar of Netanyahu.

    Excellent! So there should be no reason to suppress the military absentee ballot vote this election cycle, right?

    Dont believe for a minute that Obama gets big support politically from the US military....

    CNN exit polling data from 2008 show miltary voters favored Republican John McCain over Obama by a 10-point margin, 54 to 44 percent...

    Military Times poll October 2012: Poll results indicate that about 66 percent of those surveyed support Romney, compared with about 26 percent who say they will vote to re-elect President Obama

    No, obviously the military enjoys sending their campaign donations to the guy they're not voting for.

    And nearly twice as much...!

     Can you explain the contradiction?

    Polls show about 65% of active military support Romney over Obama.

    Many top generals plan to retire if Obama wins.....no surprise.

    Matty...you had your 4 years, Obama unfortunately was the failure that we all predicted and we are moving on from this bad experiment and going with substance over style.

    Even liberals can't afford 4 more years of Obama

    Yes..
     This is for donations all year...many donations by military were to Ron Paul and other GOP  Presidential candidates during the primary. So overall, Obama got only 45% or so of the contributions from the military, less than half...

    If they compute Obama vs Romney,  after Romney was the GOP nominee, there will be a different result.

    , "...eight of the 11 military branches the Center for Responsive Politics analyzed have given more to Republican presidential candidates -- most notably the Navy, the Air Force and the Marine Corps."

    No, and that's the point.  True, they've given more to GOP candidates...

    ...but in a side-by-side comparison between Obama & Romney, Obama wins.

    If you have add'l post convention data, then post it.
