A poll conducted by Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families shows that the troops are not very excited about the Presidential Candidates this year. While they are very dissatisfied with Trump and Clinton, they still are not overjoyed with Gary Johnson.
Dissatisfaction with Trump and Clinton do not necessarily translate to 3rd party votes. Gary Johnson appears to only pick up votes from military members who are satisfied and very satisfied with Johnson. It appears the only way to pull a military member out of the two party system death spiral is to give them something to believe in.
