Flest militärer stöder Obama och Paul

USA Today uppger idag att Irakkrigsmotståndarna Barack Obama (d) och Ron Paul (r) får mest kampanjbidrag från militärer av alla presidentkandidater.

Obama får mest, Paul kommer tvåa.

Beloppen är dock än så länge ganska små:

The center tallied money from donors who list the Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy and National Guard as an employer. Overall, these donations are miniscule: Obama got 44 contributions worth about $27,000 and Paul 23 for about $19,300. Republican John McCain, an Iraq war supporter and Vietnam prisoner of war, was third with about $18,500 from 32 donors.

Republikanerna får mer pengar än demokraterna totalt sett av militärer, men det har blivit jämnare under senare år:

In 2002, the center said Democrats received 23% of contributions from military workers; Republicans got 77%. This year, 40% of their donations have gone to Democrats running for Congress and president. The GOP got 59%.
