Official records show that 63 million people voted for President Trump in 2016.
And we believe that number could top 70 million in 2020.
In short, Americans love Trump!
And even the polls are now starting to reflect that truth, nowehere more so than with our Veterans.
According to the AP, Trump’s numbers are way up!
Here’s a short video from Fox News:
Here's more from the Fox News Insider:
Results from a recently released poll by the Associated Press show that most military veterans view President Trump's leadership positively.
AP VoteCast found that among the more than 4,000 veterans surveyed, 56 percent approve of how Trump is doing in the Oval Office.
The results from the nationwide survey, which overall polled more than 115,000 midterm voters, show that 59 percent of veterans believe the president is a "strong leader."
Marine veteran Joey Jones said Sunday on "Fox & Friends" that a Republican president like Trump who makes and keeps his promises will do well among veterans.
"We look at that places we're deployed ... and we see how the rest of the world lives, and when we come home we actually have a renewed respect for what this country is," he said.
Jones added that when veterans head to the polls, they're going to keep in mind that Republican presidents spend more on defense and make better foreign policy decisions.
"President Trump has gone a long way with things like VA accountability and the Veterans Choice [Program], but even those two things, they sound a lot better than they are effective," he said.
He also said veterans realize that if a Democrat was in office, the implementation of the Veterans Choice Program would not be where it is currently.
Sixty-two percent of poll respondents said that they approve of Trump's handling of border security, a number that Jones said isn't surprising.
And here are more details from that AP report:
Nearly 6 in 10 military veterans voted for Republican candidates in the November midterm elections, and a similar majority had positive views of President Donald Trump’s leadership. But women, the fastest growing demographic group in the military, are defying that vote trend.
That’s according to AP VoteCast, a nationwide survey of more than 115,000 midterm voters — including more than 4,000 current and former service members — conducted for The Associated Press by NORC at the University of Chicago. It found that veterans overall approved of Trump’s job performance, showing high support for the president’s handling of border security and his efforts to make the U.S. safer from terrorism.
Male veterans were much more likely to approve of Trump than those who haven’t served, 58 percent to 46 percent.
But 58 percent of female veterans disapproved of Trump, which is similar to the share of women overall (61 percent).
Some takeaways on veterans:
Overall, 56 percent of veterans — both current and former service members — said they approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while 43 percent disapproved. Voters who have not served in the military were more likely to disapprove (58 percent) than approve (42 percent) of the president’s job performance.
The survey found that differences in support for Trump between veterans and nonveterans extended across racial and ethnic groups, including among whites (62 percent of veterans approve versus 49 percent of nonveterans), Latinos (53 percent vs. 28 percent) and African-Americans (22 percent vs. 10 percent).
The poll showed veterans more likely than nonveterans to say Trump has the right temperament to serve as president (48 percent to 32 percent) and that he’s a strong leader (59 percent to 49 percent). They were slightly more likely to say Trump cares about “people like you” (46 percent to 40 percent).
On the issues, veterans were significantly more likely than those who have not served to approve of Trump’s handling of border security, 62 percent to 48 percent, and to think the Trump administration has made the U.S. safer from terrorism, 51 percent to 35 percent.
DRAIN THE SWAMP?
Veterans had good success running for Congress compared to previous years. Eighteen new veterans were elected to the House, seven of whom are Democrats.
That’s the largest number of new veterans elected to the House since 2010, and the biggest influx of Democratic vets since 1996, according to Seth Lynn, a University of San Francisco professor who runs Veterans Campaign, a group that prepares veterans for careers in politics. One fresh veteran face — Republican Rick Scott of Florida — will join the Senate.
