Ron Paul leads with military

By Libby

This one is for long time commenter and Ron Paul supporter, Lester.

It's no surprise that our military personnel favor Republicans but according to this chart the donations in this primary cycle are overwhelmingly favoring Ron Paul over the other candidates. I'm sure I don't need to remind most of you that Paul has taken an anti-occupation stance and is calling for withdrawal of the troops while the rest of the field seems determined to channel Bush's warmongering without actually mentioning the lame duck president's name.

I'd say that speaks volumes about what the troops really think of the war.

thank you Libby. you've done your civil service now. I want ed to post comment #7 but it wuoldn't let me for some reason. Anyway, it was a soldier saying that a minimum of statecraft could have avoided gulf war one but other people had other plans. another guy complains that the asshole beaurocrats weren't polled so the data is wrong. talk about missing the point.

Paul was in the air force and thus gets alot of support from them. did no military donate to democrats?

finally, Dr Paul has passed Mike "usedto be a 400 pounder" Huckabee in the polls, or the charts as I like to call them. 3%. yep. roughly a million gets you a point , more or less

Paul is going places Lester. I hear the NYT is going to post a snarky article about his supporters today though. I'll be looking for it in a while.
