Survey: Troops prefer Trump to Clinton

While unscientific, the results indicate strong support for presumptive Republican presidential nominee, who has come under fire from retired military leaders and prominent members of the foreign policy community for a lack of foreign policy experience and controversial proposals allowing the torture of terrorism suspects.

In the survey of 951 active-duty troops, reservists and National Guardsmen, 54 percent said they would vote for Trump in a match-up against Clinton, the Democratic front-runner. Twenty-five percent said they would vote for Clinton.

And 21 percent said they would not vote at all in that scenario.
