Enlisted troops exhibit strong support for President Donald Trump, but the same is not at all the case for military officers, women and minorities, a new poll shows.
The poll, conducted by the Military Times in September, reveals that 44 percent of all 1,100 active-duty troops have a favorable view of Trump and only 40 percent have an unfavorable view. This flips the figures present in the civilian population, where Trumpís popularity hovers around 40 percent and his rating of unfavorability reaches as high as 56 percent.
Trumpís popularity jumps even higher among military-specific issues. Out of all troops, 55 percent rate Trumpís military policies as favorable, while only 26 disagree with that assessment.
When the data is broken down between enlisted troops and officers, the divide between enlisted troops and officers becomes clearer. A total of 48 percent of enlisted troops approve of Trump, but only 30 percent of officers hold the same view. In fact, 53.4 percent of officers hold an unfavorable view of Trump.
