The nation's active military favors Donald Trump for president over Hillary Clinton by a 2-1 margin, a new survey shows.

The Military Times polling also shows service members are overwhelmingly dissatisfied with both presumptive nominees.

Here's the breakdown in support, according to Military Times:
  • Trump: 49 percent
  • Clinton: 21 percent
  • Libertarian Gary Johnson: 13 percent
  • Third-party candidate: 23 percent
  • Won't vote: 7 percent
In other findings:

More than 61 percent said they were dissatisfied with Trump, including 28 percent who intend to vote for him.

More than 82 percent said they were dissatisfied with Clinton, including 30 percent who will vote for her.

"Troops and veterans do believe in exercising their civic duties, and I think many of them will, despite the fact they’ve been given two terrible choices," John Noonan, an Air Force veteran and national security advisor for two prior Republican presidential hopefuls, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, tells Military Times.

"I think if most troops did what she did [with classified emails], they’d be tossed in the brig. And his entire national security policy relies on an unrealistic border wall."

The survey was conducted between July 5 and July 8; 1,915 respondents completed the survey, according to Military Times.
