Romney Holds 40-Point Lead With Military Voters

A new poll of 3100 active and reserve troops proves that America’s best and bravest — those men and women who choose to risk everything for a cause bigger then themselves — are overwhelmingly in favor of firing Barack Obama and replacing him with Mitt Romney.

In a Military Times poll likely to devastate a White House that’s done everything in its power to win over veterans, past and present (except  come up with a cohesive and effective foreign policy),  Mitt Romney beats Barack Obama by an astonishing 40 points, 66-26%

What’s even more surprising is that Romney is doing almost as well against Obama as war hero John McCain did in 2008. That year, McCain polled a statistically insignificant two points better than Romney against Obama with 68% of support.

These numbers will and should be a legitimate and important talking point for the Romney campaign. Though the recent exposure of his incompetence and dishonesty have hurt his foreign policy credentials, Obama still holds a small lead over Romney in the arena of foreign policy. But if those who are the tip of our foreign policy spear believe in Romney by such a wide margin, people will take notice.

I can think of no finer character reference.

This poll might also help to explain this and most especially, this.
