It depends on what your defination of "overwhelmingly" is

Remem­ber Adam Weinstein’s asser­tion con­cern­ing the mil­i­tary: demo­graph­ics? Com­men­ta­tor “Proud to Serve” man­aged to find this chart after a whole two sec­onds of searching.

Here are some rel­e­vant pieces from it:

Com­pare these charts to the actual demo­graph­ics of the united states from the last cen­sus and what do we see:

We see that:

Eth­nic Minori­ties are over­rep­re­sented not under­rep­re­sented in the military.

Black Amer­i­cans in par­tic­u­lar are par­tic­u­larly strongly represented.

So how can we account for the pres­i­dent poor polling within the mil­i­tary when the sin­gle most loyal group of sup­port­ers (Black Amer­i­cans) are over-​represented by almost 60% vs the gen­eral population?

One might put it down to less women as the pres­i­dent man­ages to poll bet­ter with women than men, but I think it’s all about the cul­ture of the mil­i­tary service.

The Mil­i­tary embod­ies the val­ues of Amer­ica that have existed since the start of the repub­lic as opposed to the val­ues of the left, and that tran­scends sex, race.

It is a value set that says Amer­ica is worth fight­ing for.

Remember Adam Weinstein’s assertion concerning the military: demographics? Commentator “Proud to Serve” managed to find this chart after a whole two seconds of searching.

Here are some relevant pieces from it:

Compare these charts to the actual demographics of the united states from the last census and what do we see:

We see that:

Ethnic Minorities are overrepresented not underrepresented in the military.

Black Americans in particular are particularly strongly represented.

So how can we account for the president poor polling within the military when the single most loyal group of supporters (Black Americans) are over-represented by almost 60% vs the general population?

One might put it down to less women as the president manages to poll better with women than men, but I think it’s all about the culture of the military service.

The Military embodies the values of America that have existed since the start of the republic as opposed to the values of the left, and that transcends sex, race.

It is a value set that says America is worth fighting for.
