Trump’s popularity slips in latest Military Times poll — and more troops say they’ll vote for Biden 
The latest Military Times poll shows a continued decline in active-duty service members’ views of President Donald Trump and a slight but significant preference for former Vice President Joe Biden in the upcoming November election among troops surveyed. 
The results, collected before the political conventions earlier this month, appear to undercut claims from the president that his support among military members is strong thanks to big defense budget increases in recent years and promised moves to draw down troops from overseas conflict zones. 
But the Military Times Polls, surveying active-duty troops in partnership with the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University, have seen a steady drop in troops’ opinion of the commander in chief since his election four years ago. 
In the latest results — based on 1,018 active-duty troops surveyed in late July and early August — nearly half of respondents (49.9 percent) had an unfavorable view of the president, compared to about 38 percent who had a favorable view. Questions in the poll had a margin of error of up to 2 percent. 8/31/20

As much as I don’t like the Democrats I believe it is highly likely Biden (de facto Kamala) is our president 8/31/20
Had the blue line continued upwards and the red line cratered it would show it better, IMHO. Maybe. How did the recent spate of BLM protests factor into it? How did they weight it? 
And how valid is any poll anyway? I make it my practice not to answer any poll from anyone, about anything; or sign a petition. I just won’t do it. About many questions I have no opinion anyway. 
I either don’t know, don’t care, or simply won’t say. 9/1/20
