In a new survey of American military personnel, Donald Trump emerged as active-duty service members' preference to become the next U.S. president, easily topping Hillary Clinton by more than a 2-to-1 margin
Members of the military prefer Republican Donald Trump for president over Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, according to the results of a new poll.
The Military Times survey shows that Trump leads Clinton 54 percent to 25 percent and Sanders, 51 percent to 38 percent among active-duty military personnel.
Other findings from the poll:
The breakdown of those surveyed was two-thirds enlisted personal and one third officers
- 21 percent would not vote if the election were between Trump and Clinton
- 11 percent would not vote if the election were between Trump and Sanders
Trump is the presumed Republican nominee for president, although that status has ruffled many feathers within the party.
