According to the Center for Responsive Politics, a non-partisan public interest group whose reports can be read via the website, it seems our troops overwhelmingly prefer Obama to McCain for president, by a margin of six to one:
Despite McCain's status as a decorated veteran and a historically Republican bent among the military, members of the armed services overall -- whether stationed overseas or at home -- are also favoring Obama with their campaign contributions in 2008, by a $55,000 margin. Although 59 percent of federal contributions by military personnel has gone to Republicans this cycle, of money from the military to the presumed presidential nominees, 57 percent has gone to Obama.
Suck it, grandpa!
