Browning the military was one of the primary accomplishments of Barack Obama.
He wanted to create a situation where the ruling elite never had to worry about the military organizing and striking back against them.
Seems to have worked out pretty well for him.
The latest Military Times poll shows a continued decline in active-duty service members’ views of President Donald Trump and a slight but significant preference for former Vice President Joe Biden in the upcoming November election among troops surveyed.
The results, collected before the political conventions earlier this month, appear to undercut claims from the president that his support among military members is strong thanks to big defense budget increases in recent years and promised moves to draw down troops from overseas conflict zones.
But the Military Times Polls, surveying active-duty troops in partnership with the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University, have seen a steady drop in troops’ opinion of the commander in chief since his election four years ago.
In the latest results — based on 1,018 active-duty troops surveyed in late July and early August — nearly half of respondents (49.9 percent) had an unfavorable view of the president, compared to about 38 percent who had a favorable view. Questions in the poll had a margin of error of up to 2 percent.
Among all survey participants, 42 percent said they “strongly” disapprove of Trump’s time in office.
I guess we can probably assume that most of these anti-patriarchy people are support, and not actual soldiers.
But don’t let that make you feel better about this. Those support positions are necessary to the way a modern military works. You absolutely could not have a coup without the support of these people.
The cavalry is not coming.
