Active duty soldiers favor Obama over McCain

John McCain has lost favor with active duty soldiers stationed overseas.  From an article in the San Diego Union back in August 2008, you’ll find the following: http://www.signonsandiego.com/uniontrib/20080816/news_1n16mildonor.html

 U.S. soldiers have donated more presidential campaign money to Democrat Barack Obama than to Republican John McCain, a reversal of previous campaigns in which military donations tended to favor GOP White House hopefuls, according to a nonpartisan group.

Troops serving abroad have given more than five times as much money to Obama’s presidential campaign as they have to McCain’s, the Center for Responsive Politics said.

The GOP and John McCain are in trouble with this constituency.   But, they are in trouble with most all constituencies.  No big surprise here.  Democrat Dave
