Comments

In his rebuttal to the SOTU address, Jim Webb stated that the majority of the military is opposed to the war. I haven't seen any polls of the military, have you? Have you seen any polls or data to support Webb's claim?

Mark Blumenthal:

SensibleMom,

He was probably referring to the Military Times poll we reported on earlier this month:

A new Military Times Poll (via Political Wire) reveals "only 35% of the military members polled this year said they approve of the way President Bush is handling the war." (story, results - see also Mystery Pollster commentary on the 2005 Military Times Poll.)
