A recent survey asked military members – from active-duty troops to reservists and National Guard members – who they’d like to see leading them into the future as Commander-in-Chief.
The results just might surprise you.
The winner at 27% is Republican front-runner, Donald Trump. He is followed, oddly enough, by Bernie Sanders at 22%. Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton round out the top four.
Via the Military Times:
In an exclusive survey of American military personnel, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders emerged as active-duty service members’ top choices to become the next commander in chief.
The Republican front runner Trump was the most popular candidate in a subscriber poll that closed Sunday, with 27 percent saying they would back the business mogul if the election were held tomorrow. Sanders, the independent Vermont senator, was a close second at 22 percent.
Trump has vowed to bolster the American military that has suffered cuts and been handcuffed by President Obama’s ‘Rules of Engagement.’
He promised to strengthen the military so that it’s “so big and so strong and so great” that “nobody’s going to mess with us.”
Apparently, such a simple and necessary statement of support is all the military community needs to say ‘that’s our guy.’
We’re sure they can’t wait until the current President is out of office.
Here is a report on how Trump has said he would “rejuvenate” the military:
