According to a Military Times poll, Obama is not very popular among the military he was Commandering-in-Chief:
More than half of troops surveyed in the latest Military Times/Institute for Veterans and Military Families poll said they have an unfavorable opinion of Obama and his two-terms leading the military. About 36 percent said they approve of his job as commander in chief.
Their complaints include the president’s decision to decrease military personnel (71 percent think it should be higher), his moves to withdraw combat troops from Iraq (59 percent say it made America less safe) and his lack of focus on the biggest dangers facing America (64 percent say China represents a significant threat to the U.S.)
But more than two-thirds support Obama’s mantra that securing America means building strong alliances with foreign powers. And more than 60 percent think his use of drones and special forces teams for precision strikes — instead of large-scale military operations — has helped U.S. national security.
Here’s a graphic they published to explain the results:
We’ve posted these results before and we have to caution that they are not scientifically gathered, so they should be taken with a grain of salt. But it shouldn’t be too surprising given how Obama made it a policy to “lead from behind” and weaken the U.S military while lowering our reputation around the world.
By the way I KNOW “commandering” isn’t a word, so leave me alone about it.
