There are 2.2 million service members and 21 million veterans. Including spouses, surviving parents and voting age children, the estimated military/veteran voting bloc exceeds 100 million.
However, America’s military/veteran population is politically and ideologically even, according to a CNN/Gallup/USA Today poll taken in 2004, which was the last time two veterans ran for president.
With another federal election year upon us, the VFW believes it is important to survey our members to better understand how our community thinks.
The 16-question survey will run through Sept. 12, 2016. Click here to take the survey, and be sure to share it with other comrades.
