Military Voters Rate Trump Stronger Commander in Chief

Friday, November 01, 2019

Veterans are even more convinced these days that President Trump is a stronger military commander in chief than most of his recent predecessors in the White House.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 60% of Likely U.S. Voters who are now in the military or have served in the past see Trump as a stronger commander in chief than most recent presidents. That’s up from 53% in June of last year when we first asked this question. Thirty-four percent (34%) of these voters say he’s a weaker commander. Only five percent (5%) rate his performance as about the same as most of those who’ve recently been president. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
