While in the military soldiers are not overly political and are discouraged from such particularly in the work place. But many do take advantage of their right to express their support for a Commander In Chief by giving campaign donations.

If we judge the our soldier’s favor based on where they are willing to put their money many are likely to be very surprised. Now, like in the last election cycle those in the military that donate are favoring Ron Paul over his rivals. This time round so far he has received more donations from military personnel than ALL the other candidates combined. Yes, that is including Obama right along with the Republican contenders!! Politifact has followed up on the military support claims and an article can be found HERE.

Apparently the men and women in uniform, putting their lives at risk like what they hear from Ron Paul more than the rest.

Here is a nice graphical breakdown of the donations at this point in time.
