The troops support...

the Democrats.

Realizing that the GOP are never going to haul their asses out of Iraq, US military are shifting political contributions to the Dems.
Since the start of the Iraq war in 2003, members of the U.S. military have dramatically increased their political contributions to Democrats, marching sharply away from the party they've long supported. In the 2002 election cycle, the last full cycle before the war began, Democrats received a mere 23 percent of military members' contributions.* So far this year, 40 percent of military money has gone to Democrats for Congress and president, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. Anti-war presidential candidates Barack Obama and Ron Paul are the top recipients of military money.
Unfortunately, given what we've seen of late, the Democratic party is sure to disappoint. It is nothing but a useless money pit; contributions go in and nothing publicly demanded comes out. At least when you give your money to the GOP, you know you're going to get more war.
