Military Times survey: Troops prefer Trump to Clinton by a huge margin

Quote:
In a new survey of American military personnel, Donald Trump emerged as active-duty service members' preference to become the next U.S. president, topping Hillary Clinton by more than a 2-to-1 margin. However, in the latest Military Times election survey, more than one in five troops said they’d rather not vote in November if they have to choose between just those two candidates.

But given only those choices, 21 percent of the service members surveyed said they would abstain from voting.More than 54 percent of the 951 troops Military Times surveyed said they would vote for Trump, the presumed Republican presidential nominee, over Clinton, the Democratic front-runner. Only about 25 percent said they would vote for Clinton in that matchup.
In the grand scheme of things it won't make much difference because the military vote is usually suppressed by most election boards.

Most election boards are suppose to send out absentee ballots to the troops in time so they can have their vote counted. In many cases recently that has not been done. The troops have been getting their ballots to late to have their votes counted.

I don't think it is a conspiracy, it's just that the *******s running these elections boards are idiots and do not understand the length of time it takes to get stuff through to soldiers all over the world.
