It is well documented that President Trump
has low approval ratings among the U.S. public, but as somebody that regularly champions the importance and value of the military
, does that view change when you ask active-duty troops? According to a recent survey
by the Military Times, the answer is 'yes'.
Overall, 44 percent of troops said that they have a favorable view of the current president - safely above the 38 percent recorded in the most recent Fox News poll. When broken down by service, Trump enjoys the most support among the Marines, with a majority of 59 percent having a favorable view. On the other side of the scale, both Navy and Air Force personnel have an overall negative opinion, with 40 and 38 percent in favor, respectively.
