GQR Releases New Poll: Tuberville’s Attack on Military Families and Gamble With Our National Security

Thursday, August 17th, 2023

GQR commissioned a survey looking at voters’ reactions to the U.S. military, its strengths, its vulnerabilities, and, more specifically, their reaction to Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberville’s hold on promotions. 

Key Takeaways:

  • The U.S. military is one of the few institutions left in America that unites the country, Democrats and Republicans. Despite right-wing rhetoric, few believe the military is growing weaker or that “wokeism” is a real threat.  Support for the military born of the recognition of the sacrifice of military personnel and their families.
  • A huge majority of voters oppose Tuberville’s attack on military families and recklessness gamble with American security. But right now, too few voters are following this story. Only about a third of voters have heard about Senator Tuberville’s hold up of crucial military promotions and the trickle-down effects of his actions.
  • Democrats need to stand up for the military families who have already sacrificed so much for this country and amplify Tuberville’s recklessness with American security.
