Hmm, Troops, Families Trust Bush over Kerry by 3 to 1

Poll: GIs, Families Trust Bush Over Kerry



WASHINGTON (AP) - When asked who they would trust as commander in chief, people in military service and their families chose President Bush over Sen. John Kerry, a decorated Vietnam veteran, by almost a 3-to-1 margin.

Bush, who served in the Texas Air National Guard, was more trusted by 69 percent while 24 percent said they trusted Kerry more, according to the National Annenberg Election Survey released Friday.

Among all Americans, Bush has a more narrow advantage on trust to be commander in chief, 50-41.

The military sample was far more likely to be Republican than Democratic, which could help explain the more favorable view of the president. Four in 10, 43 percent, of the military sample said they were Republicans, while 19 percent said Democrats and 27 percent independents.


Those in the military and their families have a more favorable view of Bush than Americans generally, and they take a more optimistic view about Iraq, the economy and the nation's direction.


A majority in the military sample, 64 percent, said the country is on the right track. Among Americans generally, 55 percent said the country is headed in the wrong direction.


The National Annenberg Election Survey found that seven in 10, 69 percent, had a favorable view of Bush. Only three in 10, 29 percent, had a favorable view of Kerry.


The Annenberg poll, which does not report head-to-head preferences, did not ask the military respondents who they support for president. The report cited a 1948 law that prohibits polling members of the military about their voting intent.


The poll of 655 in the active military and their families was taken Sept. 22-Oct. 5 and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. Their answers were compared to those of 2,436 adults surveyed between Sept. 7-Oct. 3 with a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.

Wow, that is a shock.

Almost certainly. Then again, Bush isn't CINC of the anti-war protesters, is he.

So you believe the links posted to the liberal threads regarding our soldiers' viewpoints in Iraq are anamolies and not the standard mindset?

No, I believe that the poll results from a subset of society that is predominanently Republican stating that they support a Republican candidate isn't earthshaking news...

Edit: Answering further, I'm uncertain what links you're talking about. My participation on the Cheifs BB and the DC forum in particular has been extremely sporatic and spotty over the last month or two.

So quit using them as propaganda to further your cause. You talk about how Bush has sent all these people off to war, and you bash Bush for that. But the people he sent sure support the guy. I know...my wife is in the military.

So, QUIT using them to justify your attacks on Bush...they don't want to be used.

There is a connection.

You will never see me post something that says "our military personnel object to being sent to Iraq", or "...don't want to be oding this", or "...don't believe in this mission."

You WILL see me post something like "this was a dumb idea", "this is an unnecessary waste of America's economic and military might", "the American invasion did not accomplish anything significantly helpful to its war against terror or short term strategic goals", etc.

So, IMHO, I have not and will not use America's military PERSONNEL to justify my attacks on Bush. I will certainly feel free to discuss the tremendous drain the Iraq situation has on America's economic and military might in connection with my criticisms, however.

That's why most around here view you as an asset, very unlike some of your "teammates".
