Two-thirds of military veterans disapprove of President Obama’s leadership of America, according to a new survey by Concerned Veterans for America. That number is notably higher than last month’s 59 percent of Americans who said they were discontent with the Obama administration, in an AP-GfK poll.
Seventy-three percent of veterans agreed with former Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen, that the national debt (now hinged at $17.5 trillion, $7 trillion more than when Obama took office in January 2009) is “the greatest threat to our national security.”
It’s one of the reasons 68 percent of veterans believe the country is “on the wrong track,” while a recent CBS poll found 61 percent of the public came to the same conclusion.
Only two percent of veterans said America has made foreign affairs its top priority, which may be one reason for the low opinion of how the government is operating.
