A Gallup poll
released Monday shows a disconnect between United States military personnel and civilians in how they feel about the performance of President Barack Obama, reports DailyCaller.com
The poll analyzes data from interviews with 238,000 adults, including veterans and active military personnel, conducted by telephone between January 2010 and April 2011, before the spike in Obama’s approval ratings triggered by the assassination of Osama bin Laden.
Forty-eight percent of civilian respondents approved of Obama’s performance, while 37 percent of their military counterparts gave the president a favorable review. Older respondents were more likely to give lower marks than younger ones. Active-duty personnel were more likely to decline to discuss their views on Obama’s performance.
