A new poll shows over 51.5 percent of military members had either an unfavorable view of President Obama or a somewhat unfavorable view.

The poll was conducted by ‘Military Times’ and the ‘Institute for Veterans and Military Families.’

It is reported in the Washington Examiner that decreasing the size of the military was the biggest criticism Obama faced from our troops.

While the Marine Corps had the least favorable view of Obama, the poll shows 43.4 percent of the Navy had a favorable view, making the Navy his “biggest” supporter.

When it comes down to specifics, the Washington Examiner reports, 59 percent of troops disagreed with drawing down troop levels in Iraq and 54 percent disagreed with decreasing military operations in Afghanistan.

However, the poll suggests President Obama did have favor from our troops when it came to building foreign alliances, using drones, and using special forces for targeted strikes.

The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus two percent.
