Gary Johnson wins another online military poll

Libertarian nominee top choice among veterans | TheHill - Krisitina Wong:

September 212, 2016 - "Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson is the top choice of respondents in the most recent polling of the military community.

"Johnson was preferred by 37 percent of respondents, which include active-duty, retired and former members of the military, as well as their family members.

"Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump came in second, at 30 percent, and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton came in third, at 24 percent....

"The online poll of 1,399 people — released Monday by We Are The Mighty, Doctrine Man, Military OneClick and Got Your 6 — was conducted between Sept. 7 and Sept. 10 via SurveyMonkey. The poll has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.

"Johnson has garnered strong support from the military in previous surveys — taking 39 percent among active-duty respondents in a Doctrine Man poll conducted in July, and 13 percent in a Military Times poll earlier that month.

"In fact, polls in recent years say troops are becoming increasingly libertarian.

"A 2014 Military Times survey showed that the number of troops who identified themselves as Republican was dropping, while those identifying themselves as libertarian or independent was rising.

"In 2012, the presidential campaign of then-Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), a staunch libertarian, took in more than four times the donations from individual active-duty military voters and Pentagon employees than the three other Republican candidates combined, according to one report."
