We’re always hearing from the media on groups that Trump polls unfavorably with; particularly women, Hispanics, Muslims, and blacks. We never seem to hear about who he’s polling favorably among.
Just like most Republicans before him, he polls favorably among veterans relative to his challenger – a trend we commonly see in Presidential elections.
The news on Donald Trump and veterans hasn’t been very flattering this week, but recent Morning Consult surveys show that members of the military and their families largely back the presumptive GOP nominee in the race for the White House.
Almost half of veterans and voters who belong to veteran households (47 percent) picked Donald Trump as their presidential nominee in surveys taken from May 13 through May 24. Of the 1,668 military voters polled, only 38 percent support former Secretary of State and first lady Hillary Clinton, the likely Democratic nominee. Fourteen percent of military voters remain undecided.
Trump also polls more favorably among veterans than Bernie Sanders:
When there was still a Republican primary, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, Mike Huckabee, and Carly Fiorina polled higher among veterans than Trump. He was only the 6th most liked Republican candidate among veterans – and he still beats out Hillary and Bernie.
It’s pretty clear what party veterans know doesn’t represent their interests.
