Poll: Troops Tired of Politics

Posted November 4, 2014 at 5:15am

Military Times reports that “results of the most recent annual Military Times Poll of more than 2,200 active-duty troops show growing frustration with gridlocked congressional politics, mirroring low approval ratings for national lawmakers in recent polls.”  

“More than one-third of readers who responded to the Military Times Poll said that neither Democrats nor Republicans have been a strong advocate for the military, and 44 percent think both major political parties have become less supportive of military issues in recent years.”  

“Only 12 percent believe both parties have the armed forces’ best interests at heart.”
