Romney Opens Big Lead With Veterans
In a survey by Gallup, Republican nominee Mitt Romney has opened a 24-point lead on President Barack Obama.
U.S. veterans, about 13% of the adult population and consisting mostly of older men, support Romney over Obama for president by 58% to 34%, while nonveterans give Obama a four-percentage-point edge.
These data, from an analysis of Gallup Daily tracking interviews conducted April 11-May 24, show that 24% of all adult men are veterans, compared with 2% of adult women.
