Quote:If American military personnel alone were selecting the next president, the contest would be a dead heat between Republican nominee Donald Trump and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, according to an exclusive new survey by Military Times and Syracuse University's Institute for Veterans and Military Families.

Conducted in September, it is the first scientific breakdown of voting preferences among service members, and includes more than 2,200 responses from active-duty troops. And it shows a very different race than the one playing out on the broader national stage. 

Among the entire military force, Trump leads Johnson 37.6 percent to 36.5 percent, within the study’s 2 percent margin of error. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton trails as a distant third-place choice, with only 16.3 percent of troops' support.

Green Party candidate Jill Stein received 1.2 percent support while other third-party and write-in options received 3.2 percent.

About 5 percent of respondents indicated they do not plan to vote given the likely choices on the ballot this year...

It's humorous that the most socialist demographic in the us, with the possible exception of monks and nuns, likes the up-by-your-bootstraps candidates.  Almost none of them followed that path, and few could if they wished to try.
After finishing second in both 2008 and 2012, the Ayn Rand types are destined to finish third in this election, with Gary Johnson.

Hopefully the pattern will continue and they will finish fourth in 2020.
