I cannot feature an all volunteer military with today's news and the demographic make up of our armed forces would have a solid preference. Once a pony time maybe, Little Comet, but nowadays I just can't see it. Election fraud more likely and if we look closely there may have been some in times passed too.
Anyway the OP is about putting money where mouth is.

Not a single civilian would be counted as being in the Armed Forces, by any active duty member. They are collateral help, that's all. Didn't Slick Willie at one time try to claim armed forces status?

I don't know why that would be either except Republicans are more tight?

Sorry, my hubby works for the Armed Forces.....as a civilian. If you never considered that the are many, many civilians that are in the Armed Forces, then it's your mistake.

There are 330,000 civilians in the Army alone.

Not necessarily...

He's getting more CONTRIBUTIONS totaled...

Let's say 1000 people donated...

300 people donated an average of $50 for Obama while 700 people donated an average of $20 for Romney...

That means Obama beat Romney $1500 to $1400 in CONTRIBUTIONS, but Romney would STILL have more support by a greater-than-2-to-1 margin...

The report shows the total, but it doesn't give the VOLUME...
