Even fixed mainstream media polls are beginning to show Trump’s gaining ground.
from Zero Hedge:
While the latest polls show that following the recent Trump surge and Hillary dip, the two candidates are virtually tied, most notably with Reuters and CNN, when it comes to members of the military there is no contest: Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton by 19 points, 55% to 36% among voters who are currently serving or have previously served in the U.S. military.
The poll comes on the heels of another, broader, survey conducted Aug. 29 to Sept. 4 looking at all respondents, which showed Hillary leadinf Trump 48% to 42%.
To NBC, Trump’s lead comes as a surprise, following “several controversial statements regarding war veteran Sen. John McCain and Trump’s criticism of the Khan family, the GOP nominee has worked hard to secure the support of veterans and U.S. military members. On Tuesday morning, a group of 88 retired generals and admirals signed a letter backing Trump to reverse the “hollowing out” of the U.S. military. Clinton’s campaign, meanwhile, announced Wednesday that 95 retired generals and admirals have endorsed her presidential bid.”
What is perhaps more notable, is that as the WSJ adds, the online poll shows that a majority of voters don’t have confidence in either the Republican or Democratic presidential nominee to be an effective commander in chief of the nation’s military. When the question is put to military members and veterans, most say they are more confident about Mr. Trump’s ability to lead the military.
