The other thing noted, and I liked this, is that active duty military were more reluctant to reveal their opinion of the President's job performance.
... active-duty military—particularly those under 40—are significantly more likely to say they have no opinion about Obama's job performance than is the case for all adults in the same age group.This is as it should be. While I voted in every election I could while on active duty, I was always registered "Declines to State" (the California version of "Unenrolled").
There are several possible explanations for this finding. Those on active duty may in general be less involved in politics and current affairs and thus less likely to hold an opinion on Obama or other political matters. Or, it could be that members of the active-duty military are adhering to a general nonpartisan norm within the military culture, and are therefore less willing to express an opinion to a survey interviewer, regardless of what they may actually believe.
