Troops prefer Bush to Kerry

This scoop from Ramesh Ponnuru over at NRO's The Corner:

The Army Times is reporting that active-duty servicemembers are backing Bush over Kerry 72-17 (with 1 percent for Nader). The numbers are just about identical for the reserves and the Guard.

I shouldnt even have to make a comment after citing this poll. Numbers like these shouldnt be appearing for the first time in a blog either - they should be headline news. Imagine if these numbers came out when Clinton was going against WWII hero Bob Dole.

The MSM would be lambasting the Republican candidate with questions like "how will you get these soldiers to fight for you Senator", "how can you take charge as Commander in Chief when the troops don't trust you", and "Senator, how do you account for the fact that the people tasked with protecting our nation choose your opponent over you by a 7:1 margin?"

Any takers on this story in the current context... CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, WaPo, NY Times, NewsWeek, AP, Reuters?????
