A new poll finds Trump’s approval rating is sinking in the military and that more troops plan to vote for Biden in November.

A progressive veterans group is warning President Donald Trump that he’s lost the support of the U.S. military at the ballot box.
“Donald Trump is panicking,” a new video from VoteVets said. “Finding any excuse to show up in military communities. He knows if the election were held today, he’d lose the military vote in a landslide.”
A new poll from Military Times showed Trump’s favorability rate plunging among both active-duty troops and officers. Perhaps more significantly, 41 percent plan to vote for former Vice President Joe Biden versus 37 percent for Trump.
Vote Vets said there was a simple reason for it.
“Because Donald Trump disrespects those who serve,” the narrator said, then listed all of the ways the president had failed to protect the troops.
For the 244 years since we declared our independence, one name has stood as the very definition of the word traitor to the US military – Benedict Arnold – who sold out our troops during our fight for freedom. He tried to sell West Point to the enemy, before defecting to the other side.
No one has betrayed those in uniform like Donald Trump.
He consorts with a foreign enemy, puts bounties on the heads of American troops. He takes the word of Putin over the best American military intelligence. To Donald Trump, Russian bounties on American troops is just another hoax.
Benedict Arnold can now step aside… because Benedict Donald is America’s number one traitor.
“Trump’s refusal to defend America’s national security is dangerous,” the spot noted. ”His refusal to stand up for our troops is humiliating. His threat to deploy active-duty troops against American citizens is unconstitutional.”
